BACKGROUND: FOF-MI has been organizing on the ground in Michigan since 2018 in support of progressive policies and candidates, including President Biden, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, and dozens of congressional, state legislative, and local candidates.
FOF-MI strongly believes in steady, good-paying jobs, decreased gender and/ racial wage gaps, better benefits, increased access to time off, safer working conditions, and more. The ability for workers to be able to organize, collectively bargain for better working conditions and wages, and do so without fear or intimidation, shouldn’t be a partisan issue, a privilege, or in doubt, it should just be the law of the land.
