Resolution On Fighting Inequality By Expanding Economic Opportunity

RESOLUTION 15-05.05

Resolution on Fighting Inequality by Expanding Economic Opportunity

WHEREAS, the recent economic recovery has proved prosperous for the top income earners while working and middle class American families have not benefited in nearly the same proportion; and

WHEREAS, wages for working families have stagnated over the last fifteen years and median household income has declined during the same period, but it is proven that when workers have the opportunity to stand together in unions to bargain for fair wages and decent benefits, income inequality decreases; and

WHEREAS, Republicans habitually promote economic policies that are detrimental to working and middle class families who are increasingly stretched by the demands of the new economy and frustrated by the uneven rewards that hard work brings, while top income earners enjoy earnings gains year after year;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, the California Democratic Party will recommit its efforts to combat growing income inequality by fighting for policy solutions that expand economic opportunity for poor, working and middle class families; and

THEREFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, the California Democratic Party will work to encourage candidates and elected officials to fight to expand economic opportunity and address the gross economic disparities currently plaguing our nation’s economy.  

 

Sponsored by Art Pulaski, 25 DSCC delegates, San Diego County Democratic Party and Women Democrats of Sacramento County.
