Predatory and illegal practices by big Wall Street banks and corporations caused our economy to crash and triggered a worldwide recession. Yet, immigrants and workers are being blamed for the current economic crisis. In Washington State, immigrants, children, seniors, and workers are being asked to sacrifice more and more to solve our budget crisis, meanwhile corporations are being let off the hook. Our communities have already sacrificed more than $5 billion in cuts to health care, education, and other core services over the past 3 years. Corporations have not been subject to the same demand and they continue to receive $6.5 billion in tax giveaways each year. It’s time stand up for immigrant and worker rights and demand that corporations share the sacrifice.
