San Francisco’s new minimum wage could be highest in the country if passed on the November 2014 ballot. Community and labor groups that make up the Coalition for a Fair Economy are pushing for a higher minimum wage as rents in the San Francisco also top all other US cities. Hear from:

  • Low wage workers struggling to make ends meet despite working multiple jobs,
  • Community leaders who submitted a proposal for a $15 minimum wage along with better enforcement of worker protections for the local ballot, and
  • Author of a recently released book that looks at the economic impacts to San Francisco following the 2003 efforts to pass the then highest minimum wage.

Coalition for a Fair Economy includes the Progressive Workers Alliance, SF Rising, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) San Francisco, Unite Here Local 2, Jobs with Justice San Francisco, Service Employees International Union Local 1021 (SEIU)
