Is the Fight for $15 the next civil rights movement? While only a few years old, the movement has already won major victories for workers, striking a meaningful blow against income inequality. But the Fight for $15 is not a standalone campaign—it is part of a larger social movement for a new kind of shared prosperity.
Now is the time to fundamentally rethink our social contract and develop new strategies for achieving sustainable change. Join labor leader and author David Rolf at the launch of his new book,The Fight for $15: The Right Wage for a Working America, as he discusses how we arrived at this watershed moment and what it will take to reverse America’s slide toward becoming a low-wage nation.
