The momentum for higher wages is spreading in Long Beach. Last week Ricardo Lara, CA Senator of the 33rd district, a champion for justice and workers’ rights, met with fast food workers and expressed his continued support for the Fight for $15.
2 years ago no one thought we had a chance. We went on strike, organized our stores, and now we’re winning the Fight for $15. Today we’re escalating the fight to go even further beyond Los Angeles and across the region. We will demand that politicians and corporations listen to fast-food workers and the community.
As you may know, LA and Unincorporated LA county have both passed $15 for all workers, but we’re not done yet. We believe that we will win, but we can’t do it alone. Continue to support our fight, if you have friends in Long Beach, get them involved.
