This was the year workers said ENOUGH.
We saw strikes across the country and around the world. We saw workers quitting jobs that didn’t pay or respect us in record numbers. And because of our solidarity, workers in 56 cities, counties, and states are getting a raise at the start of the year. More states and cities are raising their minimum wage than in any time in history!
Workers in 25 States and 56 localities are getting a raise in 2022 – and that’s thanks to our movement for dignity and respect on the job. Hundreds of strikes of thousands of workers demanded better, and now tens of thousands will see higher wages in the new year.#FightFor15 pic.twitter.com/Vu9ytNRW0f

Our movement did this. We won $15 in Rhode Island and Delaware. We got out the vote and passed $15 in Tucson. And we took the fight straight to multi-national corporations and bosses raking in record bonuses to tell them clearly: we won’t stand by while you exploit us.
However, we know this fight isn’t over. As long as ANYONE is still paid a poverty wage or stopped from joining a union, we’re going to keep fighting. Share now and spread the word >>
