Fight for $15 Today

Today thousands of people across the country will be taking part in a huge strike for better pay and working conditions. From fast-food to home care, airport, construction, and Walmart workers to adjunct professors and other underpaid workers, folks from every corner of the country and the globe will be joining together across industries for the Fight for $15. 

Under capitalism worker exploitation is inevitable. Corporations must compete with each other or die, and that means lowering the cost of labor as much as possible. But all workers deserve a union to demand their share of the fruits of their labor. Let’s demonstrate that collective action can be society-wide, not just in one workplace. It’s good practice for building a movement for democratic socialism.

Stand up for economic justice. All labor has value. Everyone deserves a living wage and a voice at work.
