15 Now Minnesota says
Thousands of people signed the petition to qualify a $15/hr minimum wage for a vote on the November ballot! But the City Attorney and the City Council just sided with big business to block $15, stealing the vote from Minneapolis workers and defending poverty wages.

We have filed a lawsuit against the city to ensure City Hall doesn’t disenfranchise Minneapolis voters who have, for years now, been demanding action on $15. We need to raise funds to put forward the strongest possible legal case so that we can let the people of Minneapolis vote for $15 in 2016!

Rally and concert featuring P.O.S, Guante, and Khem Clan - more performers t.b.a!

Tickets are $15 in advance, and $18 at the door -

Winning $15/hr would transfer almost a billion/year from the profits of big business to the pockets of low-wage workers. Join us on August 19th for the rally and concert for $15/hr minimum wage because: Vote Theft is Wage Theft!
