For three weeks of Moral Mondays we’ve fought for $15/hour minimum wage, the elimination of the sub-minimum wage for tipped workers, union rights for all and a full and just COVID relief. As we have seen over the past 11 months, these issues are deeply connected. The crisis of poverty and low wages is directly connected to the injustices in our healthcare system. We know that 87 million people were uninsured or underinsured before the pandemic and millions have lost their healthcare in the worst public health crisis in a century. In the richest nation in history, there is no excuse for denying the human rights of living wages, an adequate standard of living and quality health care.

Join us this Moral Monday at 3pm ET / 12pm PT. We’ll be streaming live for our nationwide online broadcast to hear from folks who know what it’s like to try to get by on minimum wage in America, and who have borne the pain of the pandemic firsthand.

Send a letter to your members of Congress to demand $15/hr, union rights and a just COVID-19 relief package!
