Celebrate a Step towards Economic Justice

Winning this in Berkeley strengthens the fight of working families throughout the bay.

Join Berkeley for Working Families as they turn in 150% of the required signatures to put an initiative on the November Berkeley ballot that will:

- Raise Berkeley's minimum wage to $15 by October 2017

- Raise it further each year by 3% + inflation till it gets in sync with Berkeley's official "Living Wage" – currently $16.37

- Bring sick leave up to the standards set by Oakland, Emeryville and SF

There is a deepening crisis in Berkeley and the Bay Area. Housing costs are skyrocketing and wages are just too low. Families work and work and still can't make ends meet. Most new jobs are paying the lowest possible wages. The standards are just too low.

Working families need relief now.
