FOLLOWING $15 WIN FOR N.Y. FAST-FOOD WORKERS, DOZENS OF CITIES CONVENE WAGE BOARDS TO ADDRESS LOW-PAY CRISIS

NATIONWIDE - Workers in nearly 30 cities have announced they are convening the first-ever “people’s Wage Boards” to examine how poverty wages are holding back neighborhoods and communities across the city. Fed up with low wages that result in evictions, unpaid bills, and having to depend on food stamps for dinner, underpaid workers and their community members will testify at panels patterned after the Wage Board in New York that resulted in the state raising pay for nearly 200,000 fast-food workers to $15 an hour.
