Our 2013 Scorecard has been mailed to 40,000 members, retirees and allies across the state.
This year, we rank all members of the Maine House and Senate on 11 votes they took to determine their score for the session.
Mainers are dealing with a health care crisis. Those with health insurance are facing skyrocketing rates and less coverage. Tens of thousands of Mainers go without, because they cannot afford it or their employer does not offer it. We have to do something.
Workers in Vermont did just that. Our allies at the Vermont Workers Center built a movement called Health Care is a Human Right and have passed legislation to provide universal health care to all Vermonters. Check out this video to see how they did it.
Here, the Maine AFL-CIO is partnering with the Maine People's Alliance and the Maine State Nurses Association in launching our very own Health Care is a Human Right campaign. Stay tuned as we roll out our efforts state wide to build a movement for universal health care. We will need your help! Get in touch if you are excited to participate in this campaign. You can call Sarah at 622-9675 to get involved.
