The Atlantic: What Follows the Fight for $15?

The Atlantic, 4/15/16

Sejal Parikh, the director of Working Washington, a labor group that organized workers in favor of a $15 minimum wage, describes scheduling legislation as the logical next step in the movement for helping low-wage workers.

“Workers will tell us that raising the minimum wage is definitely something that they needed, but it’s really hard when they don’t know what their schedules are,” says Parikh. “[How can] they go talk to their city council members about raising the minimum wage [if] they wouldn't know when their schedules were?”
