Show-$15 And A Union Held Rally In Conjunction With Nationwide Strike

St. Louis, MO (KTRS)

The organization Show-Me Fifteen and a Union continues to fight for better wages for low paid workers. On Wednesday afternoon, hundreds of supporters attended a rally outside of Brookings Hall on the campus of Washington University.

Glenn Koenen of Jobs With Justice says low-income jobs put a drain on society. Koenen adds “What we have to remember is there are no free lunches. If an employer is paying a low wage, that could mean the family is getting food stamps, the kids are getting free school lunch. It’s much better to let everyone earn the money they need to take care of their family then to have big corporations, big organizations like Wash U depending on things like food stamps and Medicaid to take care of their workers.”

The rally was in conjunction with a nationwide strike in support of fast food workers, healthcare workers, as well as adjunct professors. Organizers say a surprise strike is planned in the near future.
