NC Raise Up Labor Day Action

NC Raise Up Labor Day Action

This Labor Day, join #FightFor15 fast-food workers going on strike in over 300 cities along with community organizations and our neighbors to fight inequality and take to the streets to declare that America Needs Unions!

Unions are still the best way to fix economic and political systems rigged to benefit big corporations. Service sector jobs are the fastest growing jobs in the country, but they're often low paying without benefits. In order to win fair pay, fair schedules, paid family leave, healthcare, and gender and racial equality we must win a union.

RSVP - Share - Spread the word!
