Fight For $15

MO Governor Eric Greitens
Source: Kansas City Star

In a tug-of-war between the city of St. Louis and the Missouri State Legislature, you can guess the outcome. A new law signed by Governor Greitens forced St. Louis to retract the $10 minimum wage instituted in May of this year, and conform to the state minimum wage of $7.50.

To offset the loss of support when SEIU pulled out from the Fight for $15 movement, the organization is asking supporters to give up a week of vacation to continue to fight the cause.  According to an email from the group, secured by InsideSources, “[We’re] putting our energy, our resources, and our power to defeating anti-worker politicians all across the country in 2018. As part of this new fight, we’ll be asking supporters like you to commit to volunteering 40 hours of time – one full work week to help working people – ahead of Election Day 2018. We’re calling it the Forty for $15.”

Ontario is now getting a taste of the Fight for $15 action, as a new workplace reforms bill proposes to raise the minimum wage from $11.40 to $14 by Jan 1, 2018, and to $15 the following January. Although economists claim that the bill will create a $11 billion stimulus, opponents claim a $23 Billion costs to businesses, that if pushed to consumers will cost the average family $1300 per year.
