We Won't Stop. $15 and Union: Campus Panel Discussion
Thu, Apr 9, 2015 6pm to 8pm
UW-Madison Multicultural Student Center - 716 Langdon St Madison, WI
Apr 3, 2015

Join the UW School for Workers, COWS, and the Madison Fight for $15 for a panel discussion about the importance of raising wages. The panel will include campus workers, Madison fast food workers, economist Laura Dresser (Associate Director at COWS), and State Representative Melissa Sargent. Co-sponsors: -- Student Labor Action Coalition (SLAC) -- American Federation of Teachers (AFT) -- United Faculty and Staff (UFAS) Local 223 -- Workers' Rights Center In this era of cuts to higher education and rising income inequality, raising wages for millions of low-wage workers is needed now more than ever. Join us for this conversation to learn why, and hear from workers who are leading this emerging movement. Workers in the Fight for $15 movement are making real change. Since fast-food workers went on strike in November 2012, the Fight for $15 has completely changed the way the country looks at low-wage work and inequality. A rising tide for higher pay has spurred numerous cites, states, and even employers like Walmart,The Gap, Target and Ikea to increase wages for 8 million workers across the country. **Organizers: Need help answering tough questions about raising the minimum wager?
