Fight for $15 Day of Action
Local 1000 members joined thousands of low-wage workers and their supporters in rallies and marches across California on April 15 to mark the Fight for $15 and a Union National Day of Action.
“Let there be no mistake.In California, we will have $15 and a union. Local 1000 will be in the street for as long as it takes until we get what we need for working people.”
—Yvonne R. Walker, Local 1000 President
It was a day of solidarity between all workers that sent a powerful message to greedy corporations and the politicians that protect them: tolerating poverty wages for full-time work ends now.
