Working people in California have a special opportunity today to contribute to the Socialist Workers Party — “stimulus” checks being mailed out by the state government, part of a vote-seeking move pushed through by Gov. Gavin Newsom as he headed into a recall election that could have removed him from office.
Under the “California Comeback Plan” some two-thirds of state residents — including immigrant workers without work permits — will get from $600 to $1,200. Some families with children will get an additional $500.
“Barbara Bowman and I received a $600 ‘stimulus’ check today,” Norton Sandler wrote from Los Angeles Sept. 17. “We are sending it to the party and will encourage all party members and supporters to do the same.”
Contributions are a special addition to the party’s resources. The SWP’s sole source of financing is from workers who see the importance of a party that is fighting in the unions and elsewhere to advance the interests of workers and farmers.
