Workers like us came back from the holiday this week to provide services to our communities, to do our jobs, and to keep our country up and running. Despite our service, Congress will vote to change the rules on Monday at 5 p.m. Eastern. They want to make it easier to eliminate our jobs and cut our pay.
We can’t wait for January to take action. We must act NOW. Please click here and take 5 minutes to write to your Representative and tell them: Stop this rule change.
The House will vote to bring back a rule from the 1980s that would allow them to reduce the number of federal employees. The “Holman Rule” will also allow Congress to reduce pay for government workers to offset other spending.
Bryan , we work too hard to be treated this way. Click here to write to your Representative and tell them: federal workers serve our communities every day. Oppose these rules, and keep us on the job!
In 2016, we won wage increases in more states and cities, for more American workers, than ever before.
At the same time, as we all know, the fight for justice saw major setbacks this past year. We can’t ignore it. But we must also remember just how much this movement, this Fight for $15, won in 2016.
Politico dubbed it “the year of the minimum wage increase.”
New York State and California passed $15 minimum wage bills in 2016 – and 23 other states and cities raised wages, too.
On January 1st of the new year, cities across the country will see wages rise.
And throughout 2017, workers in states across the nation will see more money in their paychecks.
We didn’t win these increases because we elected supportive politicians to office. We won because we MADE the politicians support us.
And in 2017, this movement will keep on fighting, no matter the challenge. We won’t back down.
As the year comes to a close, share this image to make sure the world knows just how much the #FightFor15 won in 2016:
Thanks for standing strong with this fight in 2016. And from all of us here at the Fight for $15, happy New Year.
Fight for $15
