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?

September 12th

Our movement is winning! After years of workers organizing, rallying, and raising our voices, Saint Paul is moving towards raising the minimum wage to $15/hour with no tip penalty.

Testify for $15 One Fair Wage
Wednesday September 12th @ 5-7:30pm
Saint Paul City Hall (15 W Kellogg)

On September 12th, the City Council will hear the report from a Study Committee that has been doing policy research on the minimum wage. The task force voted with 77% support in favor of a $15 minimum wage with no tip penalty, confirming the policy that workers have been championing for years is right for Saint Paul.

We're closer than ever to winning $15, but we need to make sure it's the strongest policy possible. That means no carve-outs that leave workers behind, a quick phase-in to get workers the raises we need, and well-funded enforcement to defend the wage.

Come pack the room to show your support for a $15 minimum wage for ALL workers, NO exemptions, as quickly as possible! If you live or work in Saint Paul, plan to testify about what a $15 minimum wage would mean for you and your community.
