The first presidential debate is September 26 at Hofstra University. The Fight for $15 is mobilizing for a massive rally outside the debate to tell the candidates that low-wage and exploited workers won’t be ignored any longer. Sixty-four million working people in this country make less than $15 an hour. Forty percent of American workers now have jobs subject to some form of contingency. Exploited workers in the service industry and academia and everywhere in between make a powerful voting bloc. September 26 is a chance for them to say to the next president: If you want our vote, come get it.
The rally will take place 6-7:30. The main bus departure location will be from in front of the 32BJ building (25 W 18th St., Manhattan). Heavy traffic is anticipated, so the meet-up time for the buses is 2:30 PM. PSC members can sign up for a seat on a bus and RSVP for the rally here. A union organizer will contact you more details. Here’s a flyer to help spread the word.
