Get America Working is connecting and partnering with many groups that share our goal of increasing work opportunities for young people, seniors, the disabled, minorities, and others who often have been pushed to the sidelines. Numerous environmental organizations also support our call for a tax shift to put a price on pollution while lowering the tax burden on workers and employers.
