Organizing Works

In the past weeks, we have seen many of our leaders shift their view in support of a $15 minimum wage. This is largely due to the organizing work done by NOC, 15NOW, CTUL, SEUI, ISAIAH—proof that when we mobilize communities progress follows. When Minneapolis builds a plan to implement a living wage, we must write in provisions for regular wage increases with inflation. Else, we will face the present crisis—where the wage must be raised $5.50 sense to catch up with decades of neglect—once again.
