As of October 1, millions of hardworking Americans are now able to sign up for high quality, lower-cost healthcare thanks to the healthcare law, the Affordable Care Act. It’s easy to sign up, and if you or your family members do not have coverage at work, you may be eligible for financial assistance to lower your healthcare costs.
More than 100 million Americans have already gained greater health and financial security thanks to the Affordable Care Act. What can it do for you?
Now is the time to ask questions, get answers, and get covered. Coverage goes into effect January 1.

The Center for Worker Justice of Eastern Iowa (CWJ) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising standards for low-wage workers. Formed in 2012 by a coalition of unions, churches, and community organizations, CWJ has already involved hundreds of low-wage workers in Know Your Rights classes and leadership training over the past year.
Part of our core mission is to bridge the gap between labor and communities, including the immigrant community, in order to build power for the working families and strengthen the voices of all working people. Our efforts are supported by the Iowa Federation of Labor and the State Building and Construction Trades Council and organized labor is represented on the Board of Directors of the Center.
The Center for Worker Justice of Eastern Iowa (CWJ) is the first workers center in the State of Iowa. It is affiliated with the national Interfaith Worker Justice network, a dynamic national network of dozens of centers with decades of experience in confronting workplace abuses of low-wage workers. By standing with low-wage workers, we can put employers on notice that workplace abuses will not be tolerated in our communities.
SEIU Local 199 is proud to be a founding affiliate member of CWJ!
A CWJ recent Know Your Rights class, “Can My Landlord Do That? – Me Puede Hacer Eso Mi Propietario?” is an example of a class that empowers low-wage workers right here in Eastern Iowa. Check the CWJ facebook events for upcoming classes and information.
