You Made the Difference in Salem – Now Let’s Win in Portland

Here’s a guest post from our Oregon State Director, Amy Herzfeld! -Tara

Working America members like you made a big impact on the election.

Because of you, we were able to play a big role in electing candidates to the Oregon Legislature who will stand up for working families like yours and mine.

In your neighborhoods, Laurie Monnes Anderson won election to the State Senate. Chris Gorsek, Shemia Fagan, Joe Gallegos, and Brent Barton were elected to the State House.

We couldn’t have done this without you. Because of your help and dedication, Working America had saw wins across Oregon and the country.

But our work isn’t done. Portlanders have been fighting to make sure all workers in the city get paid sick days off from work. No one should have to come to work when they’re sick, or leave a sick child at home alone. Portlanders deserve better, and we have a chance to make a difference.

Can I count on you to help pass earned sick days legislation in Portland?

We’ve seen the great things we can do when working America stands together, and I know we can pass earned sick days legislation, but we need your help to do it.
