After years of protests, strikes, and community organizing across the city, 71,000 workers are on the verge of winning a historic victory: a $15/hour minimum wage in Minneapolis.
$15/hr would give a raise to 71,000 workers, disproportionately workers of color, immigrant and female workers. The city of Minneapolis' economic impact study confirms that $15 would give massive stimulus to the local economy and help reduce food insecurity.
On June 22, city council is holding a public hearing on the $15 minimum wage. Anyone can testify. We know that big business is going to be there fighting to block $15 and water it down with loopholes and exemptions. We need to be there to tell city council that workers can't afford to wait: we need $15 for all workers, no exemptions, as fast as possible!
Join us at 3 to rally before the hearing, or come at 6 for dinner from local restaurants that support $15 and an energy rally!
We could win one of the most progressive policies in recent Minneapolis history and be the first city in the Midwest to pass $15/hr. Be there to share your testimony and help workers win $15!
