Elected officials and candidates will join a town hall meeting on Thursday, June 14th with people who work in fast food, public services, home care, childcare, and higher education to highlight the need to make it easier for working people to join together in unions in North Carolina in order to raise wages and create thriving communities.
Working people who are employed in fast food restaurants, elderly people's homes, on college campuses, at the City of Durham, and elsewhere will discuss why organizing is the best way to confront inequality and lift the 64 million Americans paid less than $15/hour out of poverty.

The speakers will represent the diversity of the labor movement: whether they sit at the bargaining table with their employers to negotiate collective bargaining agreements, take to the streets to demand justice, or are new forms of worker organization.

People who already belong to organizations will explain how having a voice on the job has empowered them to win higher pay and better benefits to support themselves and their families.
At the town hall, workers and their supporters will challenge the elected officials and candidates to lay out their plans for unrigging a system that benefits the wealthy, at the expense of the few, and to explain how they see unions playing a role in leveling the playing field in North Carolina.
