Some of the policies that are advocated will:

  • Ensure middle-class families pay only 15 percent of their income to send their children to college
  • Reduce the cost of saving for retirement by nearly half, compared to a typical 401(k) plan
  • Lower mortgage payments for millions of families by an average of $2,600 a year
  • Restore 500,000 teaching jobs
  • Create more than 2 million jobs rebuilding and upgrading our infrastructure
  • Guarantee workers access to paid sick days and maternity leave
  • Increase access to higher education and job training Ensure that workers receive the overtime pay and benefits they deserve
  • Help non-college-graduates gain credentials that boost pay by as much as $225,000 more than comparable job seekers during their lifetimes
  • Save middle-class consumers thousands of dollars annually on health care and limit the risk that illness will send them to the poorhouse
  • Reduce the cost to parents of quality preschool
