Colorado Families For a Fair Wage

Raise minimum wage We did it! Colorado voters will have the chance to raise the wage on the ballot this November! ORGANIZATION worked tirelessly this summer to collect petitions and make sure minimum wage made the ballot .Hundreds of thousands of workers across our state take home less than $300 per week. That’s not even enough to cover the basics. But the restaurant industry is raising millions to convince voters to keep wages low. Will you stand with working families across Colorado and chip in $12 to continue the momentum? Our measure will raise the wage from $8.31 to $12 by 2020, a much needed raise for thousands of families trying to make ends meet. We have a generous donor who is willing to match every dollar we raise up to $1200. With your help we can raise $2400 this week from donors across the state! If we’re going to compete with the big corporations funding the other side, every dollar will count! Help us win in November and raise the wage for Colorado families! Chip in $12 today!

Airport Food Service Workers Demand Job Security

DIAThis past Monday, airport concessions workers who are members of UNITE HERE Local 23 and their allies went to Denver City Council to protect their jobs. Concessions workers, unlike other City contractors, do not currently have worker retention protection. That means that without the intervention of the city, 70 cooks, dishwashers, servers and bartenders will be fired if the airport awards the concessions lease to a new company. "No matter what company wins the bid, we should be able to keep our jobs," said Ingrid Canales, a cook who has worked at the airport for 11 years. "This is the best job I've ever had. Without it, I don't know how I would support my family."
