Fight For 15 Florida

“We believe that low-wage fast food workers are short-changed every day that goes by that they’re not making a living wage from fast-food companies that are profiting billions per year. We believe that no matter what you’re doing, if you’re working hard and still can’t afford to live then there’s a major problem going on. The fast-food industry caters to the growing tourist economies in Florida, and these workers are the life-blood of these stores. It’s time past-due that we treat them with respect and give them the opportunity to make a living wage and the right to form a union without retaliation.

15 Now Florida

15 Now Florida holds that the fate of the working class is inescapably bound to the fate of its poorest members. We believe the fight for the $15 Minimum Wage is a central issue (but not the sole central issue) to the struggle against poverty, racism and sexism. We therefore support and join the organization Fight for 15 in that struggle.”

Tampa Industrial Workers of the World

“Preamble to the IWW Constitution:
The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among millions of the working people and the few, who make up the employing class, have all the good things of life.

Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers of the world organize as a class, take possession of the means of production, abolish the wage system, and live in harmony with the Earth…..”
