Labor Day is a reminder to thank the working people who are building this country. We could also ask how we could improve life for working people.
Those who build our economy should have what all other developed countries have: universal, guaranteed health care. We simply need the political will to get there.
Not only workers benefit from universal health care; businesses do. The New York Health Act—one state senate sponsor away from a majority—would save employers billions by providing a simplified plan that covers all medically necessary care. Imagine your business model if all of your employees and customers have health coverage! State Sens. DeFrancisco, Ritchie and Helming could tip the balance by sponsoring the New York Health Act.
