9to5 California says “It’s Time for a Raise.”
Did you know that 2/3 of minimum wage workers are women? That’s 20 million women who need a raise – and another 10 million men. If the value of the minimum wage today was what it was worth in 1968, it would be $10.67/hour! What happened?
Congress is home for August recess. We want to bring home to them the urgency of raising the federal minimum wage right away – to $10.50/hour this year! Help us get back to 1968. Here’s how!
9to5 Los Angeles is sponsoring a Town Meeting on September 5th, Thursday, at 6 PM, at Cal State University/ Dominuez Hills in Los Angeles. Co-sponsored by the California Faculty Association, the invited congressional representatives are Karen Bass, Janice Hahn, and Maxine Waters.
We invite all 9to5 members and friends to sign the petition- Summons for August L.A. Town Meeting. When you have signed it, get signatures from friends and neighbors on the back and send it to 9to5 before the end of August.
