A Working Class Party

Sep 11, 2016

A new party is on the ballot in Michigan, the first time since 2000. And it is the first time in many decades that there has been an electoral party advocating for the working class to build its own political party.

The capitalist class has two parties – Republicans and Democrats. Both big parties speak for and act for the big banks and the industrialists.

Two parties for the wealthy, and none for the working class. It’s time to change that.

Putting an electoral party on the ballot doesn’t mean the working class has built the mass, combative party it needs. But having this new party on the ballot can give working people a chance to say they want their own party.

It’s needed – in Michigan, and everywhere.
