Today’s Action: #FightFor15 — a livable wage for all

It’s a story as old as America itself. Some of our country’s largest corporations and richest executives live in the 1% by systematically keeping their workers at the very bottom. And what’s more: we are forced to subsidize their ability to underpay.

Take Amazon as a case study:

  • Topping the lists in multiple states for most employees on food stamps, paid for by taxpayers…but not Amazon, which paid $0 in federal taxes in 2017
  • When call center workers tried to unionize for higher wages and better protections in 2000, Amazon simply fired their workers and shut the center down
  • They’ve got the money: CEO Jeff Bezos is worth $140 billion…but his workers earn a median annual salary of only $28,446

And this is just one multi-billion dollar corporation, along with McDonalds and WalMart, banking on publicly funded food stamps to guarantee their workforce doesn’t starve. That’s why Fight for 15 is taking action — fighting for a minimum wage of $15/hour. They’ve had success in New York, California and Seattle, and they’re not stopping there.

It’s time to hold corporations accountable for their employees. Call or email your state reps and city council members and demand they lead the charge on a state or citywide $15/hour wage!

It is entirely unacceptable for major corporations to depend on social networks like food stamps, subsidized living and healthcare (and in Amazon’s case, the roads and infrastructure they don’t pay into) in order to maximize private profits. Fighting for $15 doesn’t just benefit the workers — it benefits all taxpayers by picking up the slack where corporations fall short.

Email or call your state reps and city council leaders to demand a $15/hour living wage.

BONUS: Work at a non-unionized company? Fight for 15 has the resources you need to campaign and strike.
