Healthcare costs are killing workers’ wages.
- Workers have seen wages stay frozen, but insurance rates have doubled or
tripled or more over the last ten years.
- Prescription drug prices continue to rise.
- Trump and the Republican Congress have made clear they will continue to try to axe Obamacare and privatize Medicare. Insurance companies
and health care providers will likely try to make union and employer health plans pay more to make up for lost federal subsidies.
But in California we know that when we unite to fight the healthcare industry, we can win.
In 2015, organized labor fought and won legislation, SB 546, which requires the insurance companies and HMOs like Kaiser to be more transparent about how they set their rates. Some of us even saw minimal healthcare cost increases last year. And last year, unions fought and won the most far-reaching prescription drug price transparency law in the country.
Join us for a rally and hearing to call out greedy hospitals and prescription drug companies. The fightback on healthcare begins now!
