Under a Trump presidency, the fight for $15/hr is more important than ever. As our communities are under attack, we’re not going to sit back and let Trump Republicans in Washington and St. Paul roll back workers’ rights even further. We need to build a powerful grassroots movement now to fight Trump’s racism, sexism and xenophobia, and to win gains for working people. In an uncertain future, it’s more important than ever for Minneapolis to show courageous progressive leadership for our families and marginalized communities and pass a $15/hr minimum wage.
Economic anxiety doesn’t just live in rural America, but is also very real here in Minneapolis. This is an opportunity to lift families out of poverty and address some of the nation’s worst racial disparities. On November 8th, across the country, working people voted to raise the minimum wage everywhere it was on the ballot -- and it’s time for Minneapolis to follow their lead.
68% of Minneapolis supports our proposal to get all Minneapolis workers to $15/hr. The Minneapolis City Council and the University of Minnesota can side with the majority of working people and with immigrants, single mothers, people of color, and the LGBT community -- groups disproportionately affected by poverty wages -- or they can side with Trump’s corporate America, where CEOs are making thousands of dollars an hour and marginalized communities are sidelined.
On November 29, fast food workers across the country will strike for $15/hr. Join families, students, and workers to call on Minneapolis City Hall and the U of M: pass a $15/hr minimum wage for all Minneapolis workers!
