California workers and their allies gathered in San Jose on April 4 to see their Fight for $15 (‪#‎FightFor15‬) movement change history as Governor Brown signed into law a landmark minimum wage increase to $15 by 2022, and workers pledged to continue fighting for change.

The Fight for $15 and a union movement has always been about more than a wage: it includes the enforcement of wage and hour laws, the enforcement of workplace rights such as paid sick days, and union rights and a strong voice for workers at work.

National Day of Action for $15 & Union Rights on Thursday, April 14

On April 14, we’re holding the biggest national rally in history to support $15 an hour and a union. Stand with us for economic justice! Too many low-wage workers are trapped in poverty in United States. We are tired of being pitted against each other in a race to the bottom. Together we’re turning the tide in favor of working people and our families. We’ve seen progress in California and many cities, but child care workers and many other states are still not seeing $15 per hour, so our fight must continue. We’ll need everyone’s help — including yours — to make this a reality.

Stand with us for economic justice!
OAKLAND, SAN JOSE, and other locations to be determined.

    It is absolutely ridiculous for minimum wage to be $15 an hour. Go to school to get a better education to get a better job if you want more money. I held two jobs my whole life starting at 16 years old to put myself through college and I am now making almost $20.00 an hour. But you are telling me that some person working at McDonalds is going to start out at $15.00? Way to slap the rest of the world in the face. For those who claim they cannot afford college…..it’s called FAFSA, you know, financial aid that the government provides? Try looking it up.

    This is rediculous I should quit my hard labor high stress job to go McDonald’s and only have to worry about if they want cheese or not.. Does anyone realize this won’t solve any issue.. The cost of food just went up, the cost of housing, the cost of vehicles, gas, etc.. Not to count the small family owned businesses that will be closing because they can’t afford it. Nothing about this is a solution, minimum wage is for minimum skill! For highschool kids to have some gas money and a little work experience not a career. Everyone is wanting hand outs and feel entitled no one is going to strive for greatness
