Fight for 15 Mayoral Forum

Fight-for-15.png
Across the country, the momentum for a $15 minimum wage is unstoppable. Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles have all won $15, and now St. Louis, Birmingham, Kansas City, and many more are on the path to $15. On July 22, fast food workers scored their biggest win to date as the New York State Wage Board raised wages for all fast food workers there to $15/hour!

Fast food and low wage workers have set the tone for the national debate about the minimum wage and a livable wage, after years of relentless organizing to demand $15 and union rights from some of the world's wealthiest fast food corporations. And now, local elected officials are hearing their call and taking action to raise wages for workers across the country.

The Fight for 15 is coming to Charlotte! This year's mayoral race promises to be one of the most competitive in the city's history. Charlotte also recently earned the distinction out of the 50 largest cities in the country as having some of the most deep, intractable poverty and as being one of the most difficult for children born into poverty. If anywhere needs $15, it's Charlotte.

Join us for a forum with the mayoral candidates to hear where they stand on living wages for the people of Charlotte. Low wage workers and community members will have the opportunity to directly address the candidates about their commitment to raising wages for workers in Charlotte so that we can all pay our bills and raise our families.
