Our fight started ten years ago with a demand for a decent wage, but from the beginning, it was about more than just the size of our paychecks.
It’s about living full lives with our families free from impossible choices like paying for rent or food. It’s about hardworking people with full-time incomes not living in poverty in the richest nation on earth. It’s about dignity.
For ten years, workers have been fighting, marching, and STRIKING because we know we’re worth more. When we first started, most people thought the idea of a $15 minimum wage was impossible. Today, we have won raises for more than 26 million workers across the country. Take a look at all we’ve won and share now >>
