George Clark & Linda Atkins 2008 Campaign Statement on the Need to Raise the Minimum Wage in Eureka

Feb. 9, 2013

“George Clark and Linda Atkins believe in building our economy from the ground up.  Raising wages in Eureka, which are so far below the state average, is the right and fair thing to do for Eureka’s working families. When the spending power of working families goes up, so does morale, which leads to productivity boosts, lowers job turnover, all in an ongoing “virtuous cycle,” and everyone benefits.  Furthermore, increased spending by Eureka’s workers creates more demand for products, helping businesses while creating more jobs in the process.”

The Drive For Fair Wages in Eureka

September 8, 2012

“After being out for two or three sessions of sig gathering for the Eureka Fair Wage Act  I can say that I am stoked about how well people are taking to the message.  It is very easy to get people to sign, and it is fun.  We are meeting lots of new people and making new friends.  Some people are saying “$12.00 an hour?  HELL YEAH!”  Some folks are thanking us for the work we are doing!”   “We are fixing what is broken.”
