This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

Vote Our Future is a front group operated by Berman & Co. Berman & Co. operates a network of dozens of front groups, attack-dog web sites, and alleged think tanks that work to counteract minimum wage campaigns, keep wages low for restaurant workers, and to block legislation on food safety, secondhand cigarette smoke, drunk driving, and more.

Vote Our Future "was a project of the Employment Policies Institute during the 2012 election cycle that sought to build support among young voters for candidates favoring cuts to Social Security and Medicare" according to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.[1] In turn, the Employment Policies Institute is another Berman front group that is a leader in a national campaign against the minimum wage, which includes TV ads, print ads, op-ed in state newspapers and more.[2]
