Join the Fight for $15 Now! Come to the kick-off rally this Sunday January 12 to put Seattle’s establishment on notice: we want $15 and we want it NOW!
Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant along with her Socialist Alternative supporters and union allies have launched the 15now.org website to strengthen the grassroots movement for a $15/hour minimum wage.
The movement for $15/hour has been growing in Seattle and nationally, spearheaded by fast food worker strikes, a successful ballot initiative in Seatac, and the Kshama Sawant campaign for city council.
In spite of opposition from big business, Seattle is poised to raise its minimum wage to $15/hour in 2014. Even the new Mayor Ed Murray has declared his support for $15.
A $15 minimum wage in Seattle will lay the groundwork for workers, activists and unions across the country to fight for a living wage.
In order to counter the resistance from corporate America, 15now.org appeals to people to get involved and join the fight. At 15now.org, people can donate $15/month, add your name to a list of endorsers, and sign up to volunteer.
The Rally for $15 will start at 2pm, January 12 at the Seattle Labor Temple, 2800 1st Ave. Bring your red shirts and signs $15 signs!
