Campaign to Raise the Minimum Wage

action-alert

Get ready for September 14th!

September 14th is coming soon — the Campaign to Raise the Minimum Wage’s second province-wide day of action for a $14 minimum wage!  This month we’ll be carrying out creative actions outside corporate targets who are board members of powerful lobby groups fighting to keep wages low.  You may be surprised to hear who’s on the list!  Stay tuned as we announce the full list next week!

Actions are being organized in Halton, Hamilton, Kitchener-Waterloo, Peterborough, Sudbury, York Region, Cornwall, London, Toronto and more!   Check out 2 actions happening below.

$14 Minimum Wage Carnival

$14 Minimum Wage Carnival outside Toys “R” Us
Games, marching band and community outreach blitz!

Saturday Sept. 14, 1:00 pm

900 Dufferin Street, Dufferin Mall, Toronto
Meet at the north end of the mall on Dufferin Street.  You won’t be able to miss our banners!

Toys “R” Us made $13.5 billion in sales last year selling toys to kids and their families.

Toys “R” Us says they care about the community they serve. But Toys “R” Us chairs the board of directors of the Retail Council of Canada – an influential lobby group that is wanting to keep wages LOW for Ontario workers.  Help us tell Toys “R” Us that 1 in 7 kids in Ontario live in poverty. If they care about our communities they will support a minimum wage that brings families out of poverty!
