WHY WE'RE ON STRIKE FOR $15 & THE RIGHT TO ORGANIZE

Nobody can support themselves on nine dollars and change — and you can't support a local economy on poverty-wage jobs either. That's why we voted to join with workers in more than 150 cities and dozens of states to go on strike December 4th for $15 and the right to organize

We're on strike because no matter where you live or what your job is, everyone should be able support themselves.  Different parts of our state face different economic realities, but workers everywhere have the same struggles: making the rent, paying the bills, supporting our families.

We're on strike because our communities need good jobs.  We wear the uniforms of giant national chains, but we're paid poverty wages while billions in profits go to far-away corporate headquarters. That makes our lives a struggle and holds back our local economy.

We're on strike because we are people, too. While corporate profits are at record levels, eight of the ten fastest growing jobs in our economy pay poverty wages. We all deserve a better future, and $15/hour will help get us there.
