Care Work is Essential Work.

It’s essential that all families can afford care for their loved ones. And it’s essential that care workers get the same things ALL workers deserve—union rights, respect on the job, and $15/hr!

#metoo, McDonald’s

McDonald's' golden arch.

McDonald’s spends millions pushing the image that it’s “America’s Best First Job.” But for so many – from teenage girls to grown women – working in McDonald’s restaurants is a nightmare.

Workers showed UP across the country for $15/hr

Workers showed up for $15 in front of the Holllywood sign in Los Angeles.

Our movement jammed the phone lines in Congress. We
kept up the pressure during Walkout Wednesday joining Rep. Pramila Jayapal and SEIU President Mary Kay Henry to call for a federal $15 minimum wage.


We need 15.

This week Fight for $15 workers and allies are doing everything they can to win $15/hr for millions of people that need higher pay to help families get by in this country: hitting the streets, calling Congress, and encouraging family and friends to do the same.
