Fight for $15 & Fairness Campaign: Launch and global day of action

Wednesday, April 15, 2015 - 15:29 to 18:00

Join us for a rally outside the Ministry of Labour as we fight for $15 and Fairness.

We want:

  •  A $15 minimum wage with no exemptions for any worker
  •  Decent hours that we can live on
  •  Paid sick days
  •  Respect at work
  •  Rules that protect everyone

WHEN: Wednesday, April 15, 12:30pm to 1pm
WHERE: Ministry of Labour, 400 University Avenue, Toronto

Through province-wide organizing, the Campaign to Raise the Minimum Wage made major gains winning an increase to the minimum wage and indexation to inflation in 2014. But we know that workers need more than that to be lifted out of poverty, have decent jobs and live healthy lives. So we're taking our fight to the next level and launching the Fight for $15 and Fairness!

Our fight is part of a larger movement that is gaining momentum across North America. April 15 is a global day of action in the Fight for $15. Workers will be walking off the job in over 100 US cities, with solidarity actions in 40 countries around the world.

Community and labour groups across Ontario are organizing actions for $15 and fairness.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
