Change happens when students and workers unite and take action. That was the spirit that carried the evening last night at Northeastern University.
I was privileged to join over 200 students from 12 schools together with fast food workers, adjunct faculty, airport workers, home care providers, and many others who are helping to explode the movement to Fight for $15.
I want to share some of the words from leaders who inspired me last night.
We heard from courageous workers like Dunkin Donuts worker, Erica Concepcion, who set the room on fire when she said, "I'm fighting for $15 now but after we win, I'll be fighting for $20."
