Protesters are returning to City Council pushing for more change on Wednesday.
On March 4, at 10am in City Council Room 400, a coalition of union and faith leaders, workers, economists and small business owners will argue for a $15 minimum wage in Philadelphia in front of City Council. During the hearing, a diverse group of low-wage workers, from adjunct professors with PhDs to fast food workers, will testify about the devastating impact of low wages on Philadelphia families and communities. Economists will present data and analysis from cities that have raised wages and seen job growth and increased economic stability.
Workers will call on City Council to pass a resolution calling for a $15 minimum wage in Philadelphia and for the overturn of the state-level ban on municipal minimum wage hikes.
