Recently hundreds of fast food workers participated in a wildcat strike in New York City to demand $15/dollars per hour. Now it looks like workers in Chicago are going for it as well. We need to Fight for Fifteen in Oakland!

Rampant gentrification and exploitation abounds in Oakland, with stores run by massively profitable corporations thriving off the labor of workers barely making minimum wage or more, but we know we can’t survive in this town on $8/hr. Bring this class tension to the forefront by fighting for a livable wage!

The May Day Fight for Fifteen assembly is planning for and publicizing a noise demo through downtown Oakland on May 1st aka May Day, the traditional holiday to commemorate workers’ struggles.

am shoppers were greeted with something to think about outside the Bayshore Mall in Eureka California. Protesters came out to stand with the Walmart workers walking off the Job at 100’s of locations around the country. Seen in the photos are proponents of the Eureka Fair Wage Act, a coalition of local activists raising the minimum wage in the city of Eureka for large employers like the Walmart to $12 an hour.
