Universal Living Wage Campaign Blossoms!
The Universal Living Wage Campaign has come of age with the 500th
organizational endorsement!! The Bucks County Housing Group in Wrightstown,
Pennsylvania has become the 500th organization, business, or municipality to
call on the United States Congress to fix the federal minimum wage! Not to
be outdone, Texas immediately followed suite as Colonias Unidas became
the 501st organization to endorse.
With union support representing large blocks of teachers, auto workers,
and communication workers, almost 800,000 people are represented endorsers.
This four year grassroots national campaign was launched on April 15,
2001. It is based on the moral premise: that anyone working a 40 hour week
should be able to afford basic rental housing wherever that work is done
throughout the United Sates.
