The IELC is a nonpartisan organization, we believe in electing champions for working families and their communities. For us it is not about a party affiliation; it’s about candidates who will stand on the side of working families and have the ability to push the important issues to get things done because creating good jobs, affordable housing, retirement security, and healthcare-for-all are all political decisions.
The continuous assault on workers, their rights, and their unions has caused an economic imbalance in our country that has led to the almost complete obliteration of the Middle Class. The Working Class is the largest percent of our population and trying to put food on the table, quality of life, rent, whether or not they can afford their medication, and hopefully have a few dollars left over at the end of the month are the struggles they face every day.
It is our job to improve working conditions and career opportunities in order to build our communities up.
