This march is to support $15 and a union for all workers across all sectors, including precarious, care, and contingent workers, in the state of California. Organized by the Oakland Livable Wage Assembly. We meet every second and fourth Tuesday of the month, 6:30 pm, at the SEIU Local 1000 union hall in downtown Oakland. The Oakland Livable Wage Assembly builds community and power among those who seek higher wages and better work life conditions for area workers. Our work together encompasses: (1) the concerns of precarious, contingent, and care workers; (2) current campaigns to improve wages for low-wage workers; and (3) efforts by unionized workers and unions to improve wages and quality of work life. We share stories and information in an egalitarian and participatory way to build relationships and build the movement. We look forward to learning with you and making change for the better. Please love and support one another. We have a duty to fight. We have a duty to win.

On April 15, 2015 at 1:00 pm, the Oakland Livable Wage Assembly (OLWA) will hold a short rally in Oakland, followed by a march to the UC Berkeley campus in support of $15 and a union statewide. It will begin at Oscar Grant Plaza / Frank Ogawa Plaza, 14th & Broadway. This event is part of a nationwide day of action, with strikes, walkouts, rallies and marches being held across the country by adjunct professors, fast food, big-box, and home care workers - all those working at poverty levels - demanding a livable wage.

OLWA believes we can do better for the 99% in California. We must seek opportunities for all Californians to have a good life, to live in sustainable communities, and to enjoy the fruits of economic and social justice. We say: 'End Poverty in California!' The first step in that direction is our demand to corporate barons and the state: a livable wage for all!

Contrary to the untruths of austerity and trickle-down, more money in the hands of lower income workers is good for business because it means more money in circulation through higher consumer spending on necessities. This leads both to higher growth and to helping to meet the human needs of the poor in California. Prosperity for the many is prosperity for all.

OLWA builds community and power among those who seek higher wages and better work life conditions for area workers. We meet every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at the SEIU Local 1000 union hall in downtown Oakland. We look forward to learning with you and making change for the better.
