The DFL Minneapolis City Council Committee of the Whole just voted down the $15 minimum wage charter amendment, in a vote to defend poverty wages in Minneapolis.
If City Council blocks $15/hour from voters at the full council vote on Friday, low-wage workers are prepared to sue the City, and continue the fight to let Minneapolis vote for $15/hr.
Our legal challenge is crucial, but does not change the need to continue the movement to win $15/hr. Time and time again, what is or is not legal depends on the strength and determination of movements. The fight to win $15 won’t just be decided in courtrooms - it’s going to take a movement to back up our legal team.
Join us to learn how you can join to defeat poverty wages in Minneapolis - we can’t allow City Council to get away with Vote Theft!
