Rally for $15 and statewide gathering at the capitol building in Salem!

To RSVP for rides visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/bus-rides-to-rally-on-capitol-steps-tickets-14945572610 if your city isn't on the list send us a message and let us know!

Portland buses leave promptly at 10:30 a.m. and will leave Salem at 3 p.m. The buses will leave Portland from the parking lot of SEIU Local 49, which is located at 3536 SE 26th Ave.

The Fight for $15 is spreading across the country and Oregon is no exception. Employees at Home Forward (formerly The Portland Housing Authority), seasonal parks workers in Portland, and Multnomah County workers have all recently won $15 minimum wages, unions and community organizations around the state are endorsing a $15 minimum wage, and workers from Ashland to Portland to The Dalles are organizing to fight for $15 in Oregon!

During the upcoming 2015 legislative session, Democrats will likely push to raise the state's minimum wage. They not only need to raise the minimum wage to a living wage of $15/hr, but they need to repeal the preemption law that prevents cities and counties in Oregon from raising the minimum wage locally.

On behalf of 15 Now PDX and Portland Jobs with Justice, bills to repeal the intrusive and undemocratic preemption law and to raise the minimum wage to $15/hr in Oregon will be submitted for the 2015 legislative session. We can win, but we need the working class of Oregon to stand up with us and demand $15 Now!

We call all on Oregon's working class to rally on the steps of the capitol building in Salem on January 24, 2015 from noon - 1pm in order to get out in front of this eventual legislative discussion and ensure that our state legislators know that Oregon's working class demands a real living wage of $15/hr!

Rally at the capitol building at noon. Then head to the Ike Box at 1pm for the gathering where you can get plugged in with other minimum wage activists and 15 Now chapters from around the state.

Join us and Fight for $15 for the whole State of Oregon!
