Working Partnerships USA

Formed in 1995 in response to the widening income gap between high and low income earners, Working Partnerships has developed into a labor-community coalition that crafts innovative solutions to the problems of the New Economy. Among its achievements has been winning passage of one of the nation's strongest "Living Wage" ordinances; getting a countywide universal health system for children enacted, which has insured 121,000 children to date; launching a community-wide initiative to increase the availability of affordable housing; and increasing accountability requirements for corporate recipients of public subsidies.
