$15 For NC: A People's Hearing — CJJ Contingent
Carolina Jews for Justice is proud to join our Raising Wages NC coalition partners in presenting a "people's hearing" in our state's capital.
Join workers and allies demanding a $15/hr minimum wage! On Feb. 13 at 6pm, workers, clergy, small business owners, and other community leaders will testify and call for a $15/hr minimum wage statewide. We need $15 for all workers, including domestic workers, farmworkers, and tipped workers who have historically been excluded from wage increases and other labor wins. Candidates will attend, listen, briefly respond to testimonies, and share their position on wages.
In January 2020, 21 states (blue, purple, and red) raised their minimum wage. North Carolina was not one of them. Southern workers keep being left behind. We can’t live on $7.25/hr — it's past time to raise the NC minimum wage. Groups like Raising Wages NC made those wage increases happen in other states, and we can do it here. 2020 is an election year — join us on Feb. 13 to demand our candidates support a $15/hr minimum wage in NC!
