Join us for a rally in support of $15 minimum wage on April 3

Dear Community Leaders,

We are inviting you to a day of action in support of raising the living standards of working people across New Jersey. On Sunday, April 3, 1pm at Journal Square, we will be having a rally in support of raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour. This rally aims to send a strong message to our legislators that our rent and food can’t wait, we need living wages now.

What: Rally and March for $15 Minimum Wage (See facebook event page here)

Where: Journal Square, Jersey City, NJ 07306

When: Sunday, April 3, 2016

Time: 1:00pm – onwards

Why: New Jersey has one of the highest cost of living in the country. Working families are forced to work close to 100 hours per work week on minimum wage to afford a one bedroom apartment. With New Jersey being home to more than 100,000 Filipinos mostly working class, raising the minimum wage is one of the most pressing issues of our community. (See our statement here)

Who: Filipino Immigrants and Workers Organizing Project (FIWOP), Anakbayan New Jersey, 15 Now NJ and many more.

Please spread the word and looking forward to see you all there. To confirm your attendance or for more information, you can contact us at FilipinoIWOproject@gmail.com
