"We are the low-wage workers who serve America through federal contracts, concessions and leases with private businesses. Yet, while our employers reap billions of dollars in profits from taxpayers every year, we are paid such low wages that we are unable to afford basic needs such as food, clothing, and rent.
For more than 45 years, NELP has sought to ensure that America upholds for all workers her promise of opportunity and economic security through work.
NELP fights for policies to create good jobs, expand access to work, and strengthen protections and support for low-wage workers and the unemployed.

"We believe that actions speak louder than words. And for four decades, we have fought for every major policy advance that has helped women and families. Today, we promote fairness in the workplace, reproductive health and rights, access to quality, affordable health care, and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family.
"Family Values @ Work is a national network of 21 state and local coalitions helping spur the growing movement for family-friendly workplace policies such as paid sick days and family leave insurance. Too many people have to risk their job to care for a loved one, or put a family member at risk to keep a job. We’re made to feel that this is a personal problem, but it’s political – family values too often end at the workplace door. We need new workplace standards to meet the needs of real families today.

USING STRENGTH IN NUMBERS TO RECLAIM THE AMERICAN DREAM
What the wealthy and well-connected figured out is that they have strength in numbers: the numbers of dollars they contribute to politicians. It’s time working and middle class Americans use our strength in numbers to reclaim the American Dream. We need a counterweight to the power of big money – and that’s the power of big numbers, the power of ordinary people who work for a living demanding to have our voices heard – from the workplace to Washington.
