15 Now Minnesota is an independent grassroots movement fighting to raise the minimum wage to $15/hour for every worker in the Twin Cities. Through years of rallies and strikes, Minneapolis workers won the first $15 minimum wage in the Midwest despite big business opposition and inertia in the political establishment. Now workers in St. Paul are organizing to do the same. The rent won’t wait! Volunteer and donate today!

We and our partners are fighting to win a $15 minimum wage in Minnesota. Will you join us?

From Laughable to Viable

On Friday, the New York Times wrote an article on "How the $15 Minimum Wage Went from Laughable to Viable." They reported that 59 percent of Americans, including 84 percent of Democrats and 58 percent of independents, support a $15 minimum wage!

Remember, it was only a little over three years ago that 200 fast food workers went on strike demanding a $15/hour minimum wage. Now California, the largest economy in the United States, is on its way to $15!

Workers in Minneapolis can win $15 in 2016, but we need your help. 

We know big business has deep pockets, and they'll spend big to try to defeat us. But we have each other. If thousands of us pitch in what we can, ordinary people will have tremendous power.

Ginger Jentzen, Executive Director of 15 Now Minnesota
