Working for Dignity: A Community Discussion on Raising the Minimum Wage
This event launches the final report from the Working for Dignity: Low-Wage Worker Study of Santa Cruz County, produced by the UCSC Center for Labor Studies, and a community conversation on economic justice. The event will include a panel discussion on the state-wide campaign to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, featuring local workers and small business owners, community organizations, and experts on the minimum wage. A wide range of community groups working on issues such as affordable housing, wage theft & legal services, paid family and sick leave, voter registration, and immigration reform will be on hand with information about services - and how you can get involved in the fight for economic justice. Free and open to the public. Refreshments provided.
