Start Spreading the News, We Are Winning Today! $15 in New York!

Yesterday,  we reached a turning point in the fight to end income inequality in New York. The Labor Commissioner approved the Wage Board’s recommendation to raise the minimum wage for fast food workers to $15 an hour.

This victory will set the tone for improving wage standards for all New Yorkers – and it could not have happened without the courage and strength of workers and allies like you!

Today is a day to celebrate how far we have come. When we unite and organize, we win!

The fight is not over though. Yesterday, Governor Cuomo pledged to fight for a statewide minimum wage of $15 an hour for all workers. It will take all of us continuing to organize and advocate in order to make New York’s minimum wage a living wage for all workers.

We won in Seattle.

We won in San Francisco.

We won in Los Angeles.

And yesterday, we won in New York.

Onward!

And just for fun —
