KIMA-TV: Yakima workers rally for minimum wage hike

KIMA-TV, 9/2/2015:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Workers in Yakima are fighting for higher wages.

Dozens of low wage workers gathered today to start a campaign to raise Yakima's minimum wage from the state's $9.47 an hour to $15 an hour.

Guest speakers from the community spoke to the group and answered questions about the need for a wage hike.

The rally is organized by Working Washington, a group that helped raise Seattle's minimum wage.

The group hopes their campaign will help make similar changes in the Yakima Valley.
