Join fast food workers, CTUL, NOC, 15 Now, and ISAIAH on Monday, September 12th at 1:00pm at Wendy’s in North Minneapolis (421 W Broadway Ave) to demand City Council pass $15/hr. Let’s keep up the momentum.
The Minnesota Supreme Court sided with Mayor Hodges, Minneapolis City Council and the Chamber of Commerce to strip Minneapolis of the right to vote on a $15/hour minimum wage. While our charter amendment is blocked, the fight for $15 in Minneapolis is far from over. We forced the council to open a debate about an ordinance by the second quarter of 2017. The Supreme Court’s decision affirmed that the Minneapolis City Council has the power to pass $15/hour as an ordinance at any time. Now more than ever we need to keep up the momentum to demand the council pass our proposal for $15 as an ordinance.
In addition to working to end poverty wages - we will also be marching to end poverty profiteering. Every year over 40,000 Minnesotans get stuck in predatory payday loans – lining the pockets of some of the richest Minnesotans. Every payday borrower has a job and a bank account - they just don’t have enough money to make ends meet. It’s at that moment when they are charged an average interest rate of 300% - spiraling them into deeper debt and poverty. It’s time to end poverty wages and the profiteering that is happening on the backs of workers across the City.
