Every day, workers in the Fight for $15 movement are putting their lives on the line to go to work for minimum wage.
To fight back, they’ve gone on strike across the country, demanding protections like paid sick leave and protective equipment. But that’s only the beginning.
Congress is deciding right now what the next coronavirus relief bill will look like. Make sure it supports those of us who are keeping this country running!
Regardless of whether you're a nurse or work the drive-thru, all essential workers need personal protective equipment. We shouldn't have to buy it ourselves.

Last time, Congress made sure to bail out the banks, but “essential workers” like us were largely left behind. One $1,200 check is nowhere near enough. We need a long-term solution to this crisis, and that’s only going to happen if we DEMAND one.
