57% of Americans don’t have enough cash on hand to cover a $500 unforeseen expense. The Working Families Tax Credit puts more money back in the pockets of the working and middle class people who need it most:

  1. Helps working people face the rising cost of living and housing, with a leg up out of poverty or a cushion of financial stability.

  2. Fights rising inequality that threatens our democracy.

  3. Makes taxes fairer, so the wealthiest pay their fair share.

  4. Builds on a high minimum wage, so workers earn enough to live.

"As someone who doesn't currently qualify for the EITC, this tax credit would be really helpful. Personally, I would use the extra $1,000 a year to start an emergency fund, and to help my kids pay for college. Approving this means many families will be able to access a better life, and invest in their businesses and their family."

"I am proud to be a student and first-generation child of a Guatemalan refugee. My educational aspirations serve as a lifeline for my family and will play an essential role in bringing them out of poverty.
