    /So-called "Right to Work" laws are a distraction that divide New Mexicans against each other.

    Step up to the plate and help make an impact on hunger in Greater Hartford! Join the United Labor Agency at the 35th Annual Foodshare Walk Against Hunger on Saturday, May 5th at Dunkin’ Donuts Park - home of the Hartford Yard Goats. The Foodshare Walk Against Hunger is not only our largest fundraiser, but the largest anti-hunger event of its kind in Connecticut. Registration opens at 8:30 am and the Walk steps off at 10 AM.

    Click here for a donation form! Note: Please mark the "United Labor Agency" as the benefitting program!

    Funds raised from the Walk support Foodshare and our partner programs who serve the 127,000 people in Hartford and Tolland counties struggling with food insecurity. The funds also support long-term efforts to increase access to healthy food and address the underlying issues that contribute to hunger. Last year alone we were able to provide enough food for nearly 12 million meals to help our friends and neighbors in Greater Hartford. More than 1/3 of that food was fresh produce - providing healthy options for the people we serve. In supporting the Foodshare Walk Against Hunger, you will help us continue this important work.

    Walk Day Schedule of Events, Saturday, May 5th:

    • 8:30 AM- Registration opens, entertainment and family activities begin
    • 9:30 AM - Walk program begins with Renee DiNino and Scot Haney
    • 10 AM- Walk steps off- the route is less than 2 miles, starting and ending at DD Park

    President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans rushed to pass the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017, leaving very little time for public scrutiny or debate. Here are a few things we have learned since the GOP tax bill passed.

    1. It Will Encourage Outsourcing: An April 2018 report by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office confirms that two "provisions [of the GOP tax bill] may increase corporations’ incentive to locate tangible assets abroad."

    2. It Has Not Boosted Corporate Investment: The rate of investment growth has stayed pretty much the same as before the GOP tax bill passed.

    3. Few Workers Are Benefiting: Only 4.3% of workers are getting a one-time bonus or wage increase this year, according to Americans for Tax Fairness.

    4. Corporations Are Keeping the Windfall: Americans for Tax Fairness calculates that corporations are receiving nine times as much in tax cuts as they are giving to workers in one-time bonuses and wage increases.

    5. Corporations Are Using the Windfall to Buy Back Stocks: Corporations are spending 37 times as much on stock buybacks, which overwhelmingly benefit the wealthy, as on one-time bonuses and wage increases for workers, according to Americans for Tax Fairness.

    6. Corporations Are Laying Off Workers: Americans for Tax Fairness calculates that 183 private-sector businesses have announced 94,296 layoffs since Congress passed the tax bill.

    7. It Costs More Than We Thought: The GOP tax bill will eventually cost $1.9 trillion by 2028, according to an April 2018 report by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. And we know ...
