Hear from Low-Wage Workers Rising:
What Their Struggle Means for All of Us

Are you underpaid?
Are you doing more than one person’s job?
Are workers disrespected on your job?
Do you lack the job benefits that you need—affordable insurance, paid sick leave, more?
Are you being paid for all of the hours you are actually working?
Hear from workers participating in:

Fight for $15 at McDonald's, Burger King and other fast food giants
Wal-Mart workers taking dramatic steps for raises rights and respect
Port Drivers who don’t even make the minimum wage, standing for justice
Grocery Workers at El Super demanding hours of work and paid leave
Car Wash Workers organizing on the job, and winning and more...
Workers in many areas are taking courageous steps to win basic human rights on the job. Fast food workers, port workers and car wash workers are fighting illegal wage theft. Warehouse workers and Wal-Mart workers are challenging the biggest companies—building power and achieving results. There are struggles against pay cuts at LAX and long term care workers across California. Now you can hear many of their stories all in one meeting.

If they can win, all of us will benefit—come find out how.

*Please note venue change to Mercado la Paloma, 3655 S. Grand Ave.
