The headlines you’ll see in 2018

We’re gearing up to make 2018 HUGE for the fight for $15 and union rights.

Here’s how we’ll WIN in 2018:

Making higher wages and strong unions key issues in the 2018 elections

Any governor who cuts wages and guts unions is no friend of workers, period. We are all struggling. The loss of good union jobs has created a drag on wages and fractured economic opportunity in America. Every worker needs a union and 99% of us need a raise. We want politicians to do more than talk about “jobs”.

Keeping up the pressure on McDonald’s in the UK with #McStrike

Last September, McDonald’s workers in the UK went on #McStrike and won the largest wage increase for McDonald’s workers in 10 years. But that’s not enough: they’ll be striking again – and we’ll stand with them until EVERY worker has a wage that’s fair and their union rights respected.

Going All In with the Poor People’s Campaign

Across the nation, a moral revival is happening. People are coming together to pick up the mantle of Dr. King’s unfinished work. We are proud to join this heroic and historic effort to take aim at racism, poverty, militarism and environmental destruction.

Supporting NYC Fast Food Workers’ Organization

Survival isn’t enough. If working people are going to thrive in the 21st century, they need new ways to organize. Fast-food workers in NYC won $15 for workers statewide but they are not stopping. They’ve launched a new organization to ensure that every fast-food worker in NYC has someone fighting for them.

Continuing the Forty for $15 campaign

It’s simple: the 64 million people who make less than $15 an hour demand nothing less than elected officials who support raising our standard of living – and if they don’t support us, they won’t get our vote. You can be a part of this work, too: sign up to join the Forty for $15 today.

 

But none of this happens alone – it depends on all of us coming together, arm and arm, to make this change possible. Make sure you’re a part of this: Follow us on Facebook for campaign updates, news, and opportunities to take action both online and near you.
