Apparently, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) thinks they can fool us again. You remember them — the big, corporate lobbying group. Now they're trying to lower minimum wages. You read that right. They're up to their old tricks again — now they're trying to push for lower minimum wages because they want to pad their own pockets. But they can't trick us when it comes to our paychecks. So let’s think about tricks on them.
We've tangled with ALEC before. Last year thousands of people across the country pushed dozens of companies and legislators to dump ALEC. Amazon, the world's largest online retailer, cut its ties with the corporate front group because of pressure from community groups, individuals and folks like you.
You would think ALEC would get the message.
We need good jobs with living wages. It really is that simple. Yet ALEC keeps going back to their playbook of failed economic policies that got us into this mess in the first place. ALEC thinks it can trick us again with clever names and more empty promises.
This time the joke's on them.
