Fight For $15 Los Angeles



A life changing victory for California workers

I shouldn’t have to work until the day I die. Today, Governor Jerry Brown signed historic legislation to make sure I can actually retire. Join me and almost seven million workers in celebration! I work nonstop just to pay the rent and help my kids pay for college. Retirement has[…]


July 1st 2016: The minimum wage is going up across California!

Today the minimum wage is going up for thousands of workers across America! It will keep going up until every worker in California makes $15.   Many workers in this country haven’t seen a raise for nearly a decade. Here in California, fast food workers like me are leading the[…]


Victory at every level

Two months ago, a sizable box fell on me while I was working at McDonald’s. I’ve suffered from partial paralysis and constant headaches ever since. But when I realized McDonald’s was refusing to even pay me for my sick days, I decided to do something about it.   I was[…]

We’re writing our history

I’m on the front lines fighting the global race to the bottom. Thanks to the help of the community, California is leading the way. By winning $15 and 3 paid sick days for all workers, we’re leading the nation, but the best way to stop the global race to the[…]

Justice on paid sick days

We did it! I can use my paid sick days! It is the law, but laws only work when enforced. Last month we asked the community to tell McDonald’s to follow the law. Over 2000 workers and the community joined me, in solidarity, to speak up. We didn’t stop there.[…]

Solidarity is about coming together

New Hampshire is on my mind, but Iowa is where I helped create a historic movement. Iowa fast food workers had their first strike, and I joined them because solidarity is about coming together and giving support to one another. Can you believe that the minimum wage in Iowa is still $7.25?[…]
