Economic Protest: N.J. Workers Demand $15 an Hour and Union Rights

Economic Protest:  N.J. Workers Demand $15 an Hour and Union Rights
BY ROB DUFFEY
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

NEWARK – Hundreds of low-wage airport workers, childcare providers, food service workers and cab drivers rallied outside of Newark City Hall to call for a $15 minimum wage and union rights. The protest was part of a nationwide day of action around the Fight for Fifteen movement that originated with fast food strikes two years ago and has prompted some concessions from large corporations and prompted minimum wage hikes in cities and states around the country.

“Whether it’s a fast food worker or an airplane cabin cleaner, working people across the nation know firsthand that poverty wages don’t fly,” said Nancy Vazquez, a sky cap at Newark Liberty International Airport. “When jobs pay too little for people to afford the basics, families, communities and the economy stall. It’s time to do right by those of us who clock in and out every day to keep America working. Raise the Wage so we can raise our children with dignity and set them off toward a great future.”
