TKC FAIR WAGE WARNING!!! KANSAS CITY ACTIVISTS ORGANIZE LABOR DAY RALLY!!!
Talking points and preview of an upcoming effort hoping to push forward a recent winning minimum wage KCMO effort that was mostly symbolic.
Taking Back Labor Day! National Day of Action!
Monday, September 4 at 8 AM - 11 AM
33rd and Southwest Trfy
Low wage workers are taking back Labor Day!
Labor Day didn’t start as a national holiday. It started in 1882 in the streets with workers fighting for higher pay and a union! Today, workers, black, white and brown, native and foreign-born, LGBTQ and straight, continue that tradition to fight together for what we all deserve! Join us for the Labor Day National Day of Action on Mon, Sept 4th at 33rd St. and Southwest Trfwy., KCMO. Rally at 8am. March at 9am.
From day one, our movement has had two demands: $15 and union rights. We need a union because we know when workers come together to use our strength in numbers, we all do better!
It's clear that politicians and corporations are rigging the system against us. Even when 70% of KC voted for a $15 minimum wage, politicians took it away. We need union rights to fight back!
So this Labor Day, a day for all working people, we’ll declare that nothing will divide us! We'll fight together until we all win $15 and union rights!
Be there on Monday, Sept. 4 at 8am for the Labor Day Rally. March at 9am.
