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.

I, Zachary RunningWolf will be Running and Winning the Seat of Mayor of Berkeley, CA. Becoming the FIRST INDIGENOUS MAYOR of any mid to Large US City in US HISTORY absuluetly supporting the raise in the Slave Wage to 15 dollars in Berkeley. This Indigenous Elder wants to Point the original Occupy Movement was based on the Bank Bailouts which was much more it was Devaluation of the Dollar and KKKorporate fleecing the American Population as NEVER SEEN. Let me explain the amount given out was 21 Trillion dollars into only a 7 Trillion dollar Economy that alone would immediately devalue ones holding 3/4. This was a design attack by the KKKorporations not only on the American Population but on the Profit margin of Small Business by this raise to 15 will make some businesrt. When the Fleecing happened minimum Wage was around 6.50 an Hour and now in most Big Cities 13 which is double and with the KKKorporations Tripling their ASSets they still win especially now the Common citizen excepts minimum wage as Starting Wage. KKKorporate Fascism
