Essential workers will continue our fight for a $15 national minimum wage and union rights.
Watch #WalkoutWednesday to hear stories from working Americans about the urgency of raising the wage, about how we won't let any obstacle stand in our way. Hear from U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, who was pivotal in fighting to include the $15 national wage raise in the American Rescue Plan in the House of Representatives.
The fight continues for every single healthcare provider, fast-food worker, janitor, security officer and public servant who is keeping our country running. Essential workers have put our lives on the line throughout this pandemic and voted in record numbers for transformative change. Elected leaders must answer the call: Respect us, Protect us, Pay us.
