Last month, more than 80 supporters rallied and packed the room when Mayor Terry Tornek formally introduced the minimum wage policy to the Pasadena City Council. On Thursday, the City Council’s Economic Development and Technology Committee will be taking up the issue, to begin moving the process forward. We need to show that the community still stands behind a dignified living wage for all workers.
We will be at the meeting, in force, to make sure that our elected leaders know our position. Pasadenans for a Livable Wage, a coalition of faith, labor, and progressive organizations, will be rallying outside City Hall before the meeting. Then we will move into the council chamber to support workers and community members who are speaking out for a minimum wage. Please join us! Details are below. Be sure to share the attached flyer with your friends.
It’s time for a $15 minimum wage in Pasadena!
