On Thursday, Aug. 30, members of Working America, the organization for people who do not have the benefit of a union on the job, will gather along with labor activists in the Triad to hold North Carolina’s senators accountable for their recent votes on outsourcing and tax cuts for the middle class. About 400 petition signatures from Working America members will be delivered to Sen. Richard Burr’s office, urging him to stop supporting companies that outsource jobs and to call for an end to tax breaks for the richest 2% of Americans.
