Media Roundup: First National 15 Now Conference

The First National 15 Now Conference was a huge success! About 500 people attended from around the country, with a few from around the world. The conference voted on and adopted the Vision and Strategy Resolution for the national organization. It also voted to begin a signature gathering campaign for the Seattle Charter Amendment to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, with no tip penalty, no total compensation, no teenage or training wages, and a three-year phase-in for all but big businesses.
