The Future of Worker Power. A fundraiser for Fair Works Center
Five years ago, low-wage workers in Seattle fought for and won a $15 minimum wage, right here in Amazon’s hometown. Last week, Amazon announced that it was catching up with the times and raising wages for its warehouse workers across the country to $15/hour.
Working Washington and Fair Work Center are used to being ahead of the curve.
After we won $15, Working Washington kept fighting and winning real gains for workers — like paid family leave, secure scheduling, a domestic workers bill of rights, and more.
Fair Work Center pioneered a community-based enforcement model to ensure that the rights workers fought for actually become realities.
And now, we’ve joined forces to create a one-of-a-kind one stop shop for worker organizing, advocacy, outreach and education, and legal services.
It’s a big deal, so we’re celebrating accordingly with our first ever joint fundraiser, a party to celebrate The Future of Worker Power, and you’re invited!
Come help us celebrate this new model of worker power, and let’s keep showing Amazon how it’s done.
