Eureka Fair Wage Act Proponents Seeking Volunteers

Media Contact: James Decker info@fairwages.org, (707) 442-7465

Eureka residents who filed a peoples’ initiative this summer called the Eureka Fair Wage Act urge you to get involved in the collection of signatures.  If passed through a popular vote, the Eureka Fair Wage Act, also called the Minimum Wage Act, would require large employers with 25 or more workers in Eureka to pay a 12 dollar minimum wage.  Eureka Fair Wage Act proponents assert that a higher minimum wage,  with a small business exception, will improve lives, make Walmart reconsider its presence in Eureka, boost the local economy, bring employment up, and allow individuals who work full time to rise just above the federal poverty level. Fair Wage Act proponents are currently collecting signatures to get the initiative on the ballot and need your help.

Meetings for the Eureka Fair Wage Act are every Tuesday at 6:15 pm in the basement of the Eureka Labor Temple, 840 E Street.   More information can be found and questions answered by visiting the Eureka Fair Wage Act website, http://fairwages.org, or by calling 707-442-7465.  If you are interested in collecting signatures or helping the campaign in any way, wherever you live, please get in contact.  All work for the Eureka Fair Wage Act is volunteer.
