URBAN CORE CALLING: KANSAS CITY FIGHT FOR $15 PHONE BANK FINAL PUSH BEFORE UPCOMING VOTE!!!
Over the past few days and all of this week . . . Kansas City urban core denizens will be making personal calls to garner support for a controversial Kansas City wage hike that contradicts Missouri law.
Recently, Missouri cut back the minimum wage in STL after Jeff City politicos ruled that municipalities can't hike wages without Statewide approval.
And now . . .
Question 3 for the upcoming Kansas City election looms . . . Check the Sample ballot:
Question 3: Shall the City of Kansas City enact now a municipal minimum wage of $10.00 per hour on August 24, 2017, and increased annually by $1.25 per hour beginning September 1, 2019, to reach $15.00 per hour in 2022?
Here's public notice about the latest round of locals dialing for dollars . . .
PHONEBANK FOR $15 WITH US!
Sound the call to action to Kansas City workers! The August 8 election in Kansas City, Missouri, is coming up. This is our chance to vote on a higher minimum wage, a living wage for every worker. But some families don't yet know about the vote.
That's why we are mobilizing to phonebank for $15.
While the might be a futile effort from a legislative perspective, a strong showing would bolster upcoming statewide efforts to raise the minimum wage OR opposition and/or week turnout might hurt the cause.
