Joseph Geevarghese

Executive Director
Good Jobs Nation

Joseph Geevarghese is the Executive Director of Good Jobs Nation. The mission of Good Jobs Nation is to hold the President and all politicians - whether Democrat or Republican - accountable to America’s workers. By mobilizing workers both on the streets and online, we are demanding that elected officials invest our taxpayer dollars in corporations that create good union jobs in the USA – not firms that keep workers in poverty and ship our jobs overseas. Since 2013, Good Jobs Nation has won 3 historic executive orders to raise wages, crack-down on labor law abuses, and extend paid leave at companies that receive federal funding. Good Jobs Nation has also been at the forefront of the fight to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and to safeguard the freedom of workers to organize alongside US Sen. Bernie Sanders and Keith Ellison.
