Camille And Matt Discuss Rights for Working Class Families
Published on June 30, 2012
Camille Rivera is a prominent leader in the Working Families Party
of New York, fighting for progressive causes, and fair rights for working class Americans. Camille is also Executive Director of UnitedNY.org
, a group that has been a strong advocate of the Occupy Movement, healthcare reform, fair taxation, and ensuring poor and middle class Americans have a shot at success in this country. By working alongside the two party system to push for specific issues, the Working Families Party has been successful in advocating their causes, and accomplishing changes in legislation.
The current full-time minimum wage salary in NY is only a little over $15,000. Camille and other activists are committed to changing this, so families living on this income level are able to pay for healthcare, food, and basic amenities.
