There is an important rally this week for FIGHT for $15 April 14, 4:00-6:00 Downtown Chicago. Can we all go to this and wear UPI green?
Want more info? Stop by tabling in Village Square Tuesday 4/12 and Wednesday 4/13, 11:00-2:00.
Please announce this rally in your classes this week. I’m attaching a flier you can copy and hand out.
Remember: half of all McDonald’s workers in Chicago are on public assistance because they are not paid a living wage. As McDonald’s worker Adriana Alvarez said on APRIL 1: “McDonald’s costs us tax payers 368 million dollars every year. I believe that $368 million should go to Chicago State University, Northeastern Illinois University, and our public schools.”
To move the Illinois State Legislature to fund higher education, we are going to have to work on all fronts and make revenue an issue that gets attention.
Thanks and don’t let the hard work flag now!
We’ve got to keep going!!
All the best,
