the first committee weeks, through sine die, the end of every Legislative
Session, Working Families Lobby Corps activists represent Florida’s working
people at the Capitol. Those same activists leave the Capitol empowered to take
the fight home, spreading the word about how “politics as usual” really works
in Tallahassee, and galvanizing their Sisters and Brothers to join the fight.
year, the union members and citizen activists of the Working Families Lobby
Corps will be in Tallahassee once again – every day – to make sure ALL working
people in the state are represented fairly. We will continue to be there every
day to speak out in favor of workers and WILL be heard.
The Florida Legislature’s annual assault on Working Families has come to an end. The final week saw a flurry of legislation guaranteeing an apocalyptic future for Floridians, and as the smoke clears the dystopian reality is becoming clear. Check out our final video of the year to see the last minute attack unfold and how the activists form the Working Families Lobby Corps stood strong against the politicians and their big-money friends.
Florida’s Legislative Session is winding down, but the attacks on
working families are still coming at full force. Committee meetings have
ended so the final shape of our dark dystopian future is taking focus.
The politicians and their big-industry allies continued the assault on
public education, local control and healthcare access, setting up an
apocalyptic reality for working Floridians. Thankfully, the Working
Families Lobby Corps was there to meet their attack and help preserve
Florida for future generations.
Week 7 of Legislative Session saw the politicians pull out all the stops in their attack on working families. Political tricks and last-minute amendments were used to be sure the big-money special interests were taken care of at the expense of Florida’s future generations. Public school safety and funding, access to healthcare and our constitutional rights were all under attack, and the Working Families Lobby Corps was there to fight back!
We have passed the halfway point of Legislative Session and the attacks keep coming! Watch as the activists in the Working Families Lobby Corps fight back against the continued onslaught driven by big-money interests and the politicians who do their bidding. Our Constitutional rights, public education and school safety were again targeted by the Legislature and working Floridians were there to meet them on the battlefield that will determine our future!
