We Still Rise - Fight for $15

When: Monday, February 12 2018 @ 11:30 AM - - 01:00PM
Where: McDonalds
2040 North First Street
San Jose, CA
Description:

On February 12th - continue the fight against poverty, racism, ecological devastation, and the wart economy.

On February 12, 1968, a group of African-American sanitation workers in Memphis went on strike for the right to organize a union and safer, better-paid work.

Martin Luther King Jr. was struck down on April 4th - 52 days after he joined their fight in Memphis.

The fight continues. Fifty years later, the Fight for $15 will stand up for our right to form unions, for jobs that uplift families, and to unite with the Poor People's Campaign: a National Call for Moral Revival.

This is part of a national action: https://fightfor15.org/thousands-workers-carry-fight-higher-pay-union-rights/
