WE NEED YOU and need to know how many are covering. Transportation and Food provided, but we need to know if you are coming. Full schedule will be sent to you. Thanks, Bruce Wright, Poor People’ Economic Human Rights Campaign, My Place In Recovery, The Fight for 15, and the Green Party, and Green Shadow Cabinet. Join our Fight for 15 in Florida! We believe that low-wage fast food workers are short-changed every day that goes by that they’re not making a living wage from fast-food companies that are profiting billions per year. We believe that no matter what you’re doing, if you’re working hard and still can’t afford to live then there’s a major problem going on. The fast-food industry caters to the growing tourist economies in Florida, and these workers are the life-blood of these stores. It’s time past-due that we treat them with respect and give them the opportunity to make a living wage and the right to form a union without retaliation.

Enough is enough; communities and workers in FL, it’s time to end the fast-food struggle by joining the movement to improve the quality of life for thousands of exploited workers in the fast-food industry in Florida.
