Washington, 21 abr (EFE).- Activistas en campaña contra la brutalidad policial y el perfil racial por parte de las autoridades llegaron a Washington DC, después de recorrer a pie 200 millas desde Nueva York.
In cities throughout America yesterday, advocates for workers’ rights mobilized in a day of nationwide protests.
NEW YORK – Yesterday’s slogan “Fight 4-15” showed unanimity on tax day among not only fast food workers in the United States, but also health, home, child care workers, airport services, retail employees, adjunct professors and students in major cities across the country and globe on raising minimum wage.
Protests on Wednesday aimed at raising pay for low-wage workers reached 230 cities. Employees are stepping out to highlight issues that affect not only them, but also a wide swath of Americans.
A coalition of groups launched a campaign today to get a measure on the ballot for a $15 minimum wage in the District.
Low-wage workers gathered on the steps of the Wilson Building, where they joined in chants of “We’re homecare workers. Fight back.” and “No justice, no peace. No 15, no peace.”
