U.S. Capitol workers struck yesterday for a living wage and a union, asking Pope Francis to meet with them. Praying for better wages & union, the food service and other government contract workers said they hope that when Francis addresses Congress later this week, “our Senators and House Representatives will heed his call for worker justice and make meaningful and bipartisan reforms that allow workers to sustain a family and put an end to a ‘throwaway economy’ that values profit over people and planet.” Click here to add your own prayers in support of the Pope's speech to Congress. “At the end of the week, we'll send your prayers to Congressional leadership to encourage them to act on the Pope's value-oriented policy prescriptions and stand up for working people,” said Interfaith Worker Justice. photo courtesy Good Jobs Nation
