– Where everyone who wants to work has a living-wage job.
– Where no one needs to cobble together multiple jobs to make ends meet.
– Where joblessness and its consequences no longer exist.
– Where millions are working in concert to heal our environment, rebuild our physical and care infrastructure, and renew our public art.
– Where the basic right to a job is guaranteed.
