NETWORK Statement on ‘The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015’

NETWORK, A National Catholic Social Justice Lobby is encouraged to hear that a budget deal has been reached that will surpass sequester budget caps for the next two years and raise the debt ceiling to prevent a default on our nation’s financial obligations. Achieving these objectives will lead to a more stable and secure economy that is better equipped to care for the needs of those who are vulnerable and to grow with innovation and improvement.

NETWORK Position on the President Obama’s Proposed Rule to Reform Overtime Pay

NETWORK strongly supports the Obama administration’s proposed rule to reform overtime pay for salaried workers.  Our position is based on our faith’s teaching related to the dignity of work and need for the economy to serve all people, not just those at the top.  Work is more than a way to make a living; it is a form of continuing participation in God’s creation. The dignity of work must be protected by providing workers basic rights, including the right to decent and fair wages.
