SHOW-ME KANSAS CITY FAIR WAGE FIGHT FOR $15 WORKERS ORGANIZING 'SHUT DOWN THE CAPITOL!' MISSOURI PROTEST!!!
Currently, a controversial and potentially groundbreaking court case is still in play for the ongoing effort to raise the Kansas City minimum wage to $15 despite Missouri State Law.
And so . . .
On Labor Day it's important to document the ongoing arguments of these local activist who rage on local streets and will be coming soon to the Missouri State Capitol even as their corporate employers are quickly working to replace them with machines.
9/12 Shut Down the Capitol!
On September 12th, low-wage workers, people of faith, union members, clergy, students, and community organizations will come together at state capitols across America.
From across the state, we converge on Jefferson City with a simple demand for lawmakers: Stop undermining Missouri's state motto and "Let the Welfare of the People Be the Supreme Law!" Stop condemning Kansas City's working families to poverty by blocking out $13 minimum wage increase, which we passed last year! Halt your anti-democratic and racist efforts to strip us of our voting rights by putting voter ID on the November election! Cease attacks on our unions! And allow Medicaid to expand and give working people and the poor the healthcare each of us deserves!
Our multi-racial movement will speak with one voice on the 12th and proclaims we won't fall prey to any attempts to divide and conquer the people of our nation with hate and bigotry. Join us as we come together to demonstrate to Jefferson City and our country, "This is what democracy looks like!"
