FEI Principles

Fair Economy Illinois Principles:

  • We oppose major cuts to social services and education systems; we believe we need to invest in our public institutions, human service agencies, public safety programs and infrastructure.
  • We oppose undermining workers’ wages and retirement earnings; we believe everyone has a right to earn a living wage and retire with dignity.
  • We oppose regressive taxes that place a heavy burden on low- and middle-income families; instead we support raising revenue from those who can afford to pay more, such as top income earners and Big Corporations.
  • We oppose subsidizing extractive, polluting energy industries; we support investing in a new economy with green jobs and clean energy, and a safe, healthy environment for all Illinois residents.
