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?

Corporations are mobilizing to silence our voices

Workers submitting 20,000 signatures for $15/hr in Minneapolis

Undermining workers’ right to vote on minimum wage, or Minneapolis’ ability to pass policies like paid sick days, is now a “top priority” to Minnesota corporations. The Minnesota Business Partnership, which represents giant corporations like Target, Best Buy, Cargill, Delta, PolyMet Mining, US Bank and Wells Fargo, is uniting with Republicans to strip workers in cities like Minneapolis of their ability to pass policies like $15/hour.

This is urgent, and could pass at anytime during the special session.

We’re planning a massive outreach operation right now to take action and mobilize against this attack on working people in the city of Minneapolis.

Can you donate $15 right now to bolster this effort?
