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!
THURSDAY, APRIL 14 NATIONAL ACTIONS
