Yakima Herald: Marchers rally for $15 minimum wage

Yakima Herald, 11/10/2015

About 40 workers gathered in Millennium Plaza Tuesday in support of a $15 per hour minimum wage.


Advocates are looking to get the minimum wage issue on top of political agendas in the wake of last week’s elections. The rally and march in Yakima was one of several events statewide organized by Working Washington, a coalition of unions, faith groups and grass roots organizations.

As part of Tuesday’s activities in Yakima, the group marched from Millennium Plaza to Yakima City Hall to provide more than 1,000 signatures from community members who support a $15 per hour minimum wage.
