On April 14th, low-wage workers and allies will join together nationwide for a historic moment to Fight for $15. You won’t want to miss it. For every hard working underpaid worker who dreams of a better future for their family – and for every person who believes that’s a dream worth fighting for, this is it. This is the day to be louder, stronger, and more united than we’ve ever been.
Join the Fight for $15 in 2016! RSVP on Facebook or at WageAction.org
Thursday, April 14th, 3:30PM
MA State House
Save the date and stand with us for economic justice! Too many low wage workers are trapped in poverty. We are tired of being pitted against each other in a race to the bottom. Rain or Shine. Family friendly.
On Thursday, April 14th, we’ll rally at the State House in Boston at 3:30PM, followed by a short march through the Boston Common. While corporate executives, Wall Street investors and other one-percenters bounce back from the most serious economic recession in 100 years, everyone else continues to face a punishing, decades-long reality of stagnant wages. Too many of us are forced to choose between keeping a roof over our heads, paying our bills or feeding our kids. But on April 14th, we have a different choice; we can choose to stand up for what is right.
Sign up for the Thunderclap to help spread the word! A Thunderclap is a social media tool where hundreds of people can help amplify one message for a cause. All you have to do is click this link choose Support with Facebook or Support with Twitter, and it will connect your personal social media accounts! Then, on April 14th at 3:30PM, just as we’re advocating at the State House for $15/hour, all of the messages will be released. All at once. One unified message in support of the #Fightfor15 will reach tens of thousands of our friends, family, and community members – but only if you take two minutes to chip in.
Together we’re turning the tide in favor of working people and our families. And we’ll need everyone’s help – including yours – to make this a reality. We’re fed up with working families being forced to survive on poverty wages, while being exploited by companies raking in billions of dollars of profit. On April 14th, 2016, we are taking to the streets.
Will you be there to stand with us for $15/hour?
