Polls show 68% of Minneapolis residents support our proposal for $15/hour, phased in for big business by 2020 and medium-small business by 2022 for every worker. The same poll showed a stunning 83% of African Americans and 74% of women voters support our proposal; groups that are disproportionately affected by poverty wages. Let’s demand City Council pass OUR proposal for $15/hour! We know we have a massive base of support in every ward, but we need your help to do the outreach to meet them.
The last six months have made it clear that we need to build an independent source of power to win $15/hour in Minneapolis. Low-wage workers have been organizing, demonstrating and even going on strike to win $15/hour, but Mayor Hodges and Minneapolis City Council have refused to take any substantial action beyond making vague promises to address poverty wages.
We intend to doorknock in every ward across Minneapolis, collect thousands of postcards demanding City Council pass an ordinance for $15/hour.
Ward action groups are building this movement in every community of Minneapolis - sign up today to join yours!
