There are strikes today in 190 cities with fast food workers demanding $15 an hour and the right to unionize. At the same time low-wage federal contract workers are demanding Presidential action to win $15 and a union.
Good Jobs Nation is leading the effort to get the President to require federal contractors to pay $15 and allow unions.
Good Jobs Nation is an organization of low-wage workers employed by government contractors who are joining together to call on the President to use Executive Orders to give them a living wage of $15 an hour, good benefits and a voice on the job. The Good Jobs Nation campaign is supported by a coalition of national faith and advocacy organizations, including Demos, Interfaith Worker Justice, and Change to Win.
