Join the U-M Student Labor Coalition for a Mock Wage Board next Tuesday, November 17 at 7 PM, Weill Hall, Betty Ford Classroom (room #1110)
“Come to our Mock Wage Board, where expert speakers, community leaders, and active minimum wage workers will discuss the impact and implementation of raising the minimum wage at the University of Michigan to $15/hour. Based off of the New York City Wage Board, which recently came together to make a recommendation to the City that the minimum wage for fast food workers be raised. They were successful!
While the State of Michigan does not have a wage board, on Thursday October 8, 2015 Detroit15 put on a mock wage board to give workers a voice in our State about their working conditions and the urgency of the minimum wage.
Now the Student Labor Coalition on our campus is bringing a mock wage board here, for solidarity with Detroit15, and for working students and working people on this campus to have a voice about the wages they are making.
At our Mock Wage Board, we will have community leaders, experts on economics and labor, and first-hand workers to discuss the minimum wage situation at the University of Michigan.
All are welcome to join us in learning more about the impact of raising the minimum wage, and to help us formulate a recommendation to the University about this issue”
