$15 and a Union: The Rising Tide of Low Wage Workers for a Just Economy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This past year has seen a tidal wave of activism and leadership from the ground up on workers’ rights, from nationwide fast food strikes to the success of domestic worker wage campaigns. With minimum wage legislation becoming a priority for New York State leaders, the time is right for real and lasting change to the way we pay and value the labor of low wage workers. For those of us who are operating as allies, how do we engage with, support, and lift up the voices of those most marginalized? Hear from organizers and activists at the local, state, and national levels on their work.
