Philadelphia 15 Now
Philadelphia 15 Now is a chapter of 15 Now and gives the following descriptive information:
The movement for a minimum wage of $15/hour is an expression of this enormous problem of inequality. Walmart and McDonalds reap massive profits, but their employees are forced to work two or 3 part time low wage jobs and rely on public assistance to make ends meet. The support for the fast food workers actions for $15 showed that the aspirations of Occupy to fight against poverty and inequality are alive and growing among millions.
The struggle to raise the minimum wage is lively and dynamic movement which is developing all across the US. 15Now is part of this wider movement, open for all to join and fight with us. Due to the work of Fight For 15, 15Now, and our allies and other organizations, there have been significant increases in the minimum wage in cities across the country in the past 6 months and we have pushed the issue into the mainstream public debate in many others.
