Nationwide day of action planned
The Fight for $15 and a union is planning their biggest nationwide day of action yet on Tuesday, November 10, and they’re looking for your support.
What: Largest mobilization yet in the Fight for $15
When: Tuesday, November 10, 2015 at 5 PM
Where: Statewide rally point in CCB Plaza, 201 Corcoran St, Durham, NC 27701
Time is now to build movement for $15 and a union
According to the National Employment Law Project (NELP), 42 percent of American workers get paid less than $15 an hour. In North Carolina, that number jumps to half of all workers in this state.
The good news is these workers overwhelmingly approve of unions and support the goal of $15 and union rights, especially in the South, where 77 percent of workers earning less than $15 an hour support the cause.
“This outpouring of support for a voice on the job from underpaid workers across the economy is the latest sign that workers across the economy are ready to join together in unions to address the most important problems on the job,” said Christine Owens, Executive Director at NELP.
The more low-wage workers hear about the Fight for $15, the better, which makes the nationwide day of action on November 10 more important than ever:
On November 10, we’re holding a national day of action to support $15 an hour and union rights. Believe me, you want to be there.
We’re standing together on November 10 to say, “We need a raise!” People across the country will be standing up with fast-food workers, child care workers and all 64 million underpaid workers making less than $15, because it’s TIME for $15. 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.
Sign up now to let us know you’ll be there on November 10 and be one of millions demanding the fair pay, respect, and the future we deserve!
