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.
