  • Supporters squeeze into Labor Temple hall at 15Now.org rally.

An overflow crowd packed into the main hall at Seattle’s Labor Temple this afternoon for a rally kicking off the launch of 15Now.org, a grassroots campaign dedicated to passing a $15 an hour minimum wage in Seattle, you know, now! If the establishment types thought (or hoped) that both Socialist Alternative and the broader agitation for a $15 dollar an hour minimum wage had peaked in November, they couldn’t be more wrong. Indeed, if today’s rally is any indication, local support for this struggle is only growing and broadening, both among the grassroots and within the traditional Democrat power base that is organized labor.
