David Rolf: The National ‘Fight For Fifteen’

Town Hall Seattle says
Seattle’s still-controversial $15 minimum wage took successful campaigning and public opinion to pass into law in 2013. Now, one of the local movement’s central figures speaks out about the struggle. David Rolf (president of SEIU 775) places the region’s organizing into a national context in The Fight for Fifteen. He also explains “middle out” economics and stresses the need for a national $15/hour rate. He’ll share stories from local activists (both in 2013 and farther back in Seattle’s history) and offer concrete tips for anyone interested in raising wages for the working class. Raising wages starts with action and, as Rolf will explain, this action starts with basic economic knowledge.
