The Global Women’s Strike/LA and Women of Color/GWS urge you to join us in supporting efforts of Raise the Wage to increase the minimum wage in LA to $15 an hour. As a result of the coalition’s work and other community pressure, LA City Council has decided to hold hearings of its Economic Development Committee in several different venues across the city – we hope you’ll join us and let your voice be heard in support, please see flyer below for locations.
