(November 10th, 2015, Chicago) — Hospital and healthcare workers joined the growing movement to #FightFor15 to demand economic justice for working people and our families!

All across Chicago and the Midwest hospital workers took action to support the #FightFor15 movement by marching in the streets, “stickering up” and leafleting in our work sites.

Workers took to the streets to demand:

A Living Wage is Essential to Good Health:

People who live in poverty are more likely to suffer from chronic conditions and to have risk factors that lead to poor health outcomes.

At Metro South Hospital, workers raise their voices in support of living wages and a $15 hourly wage floor.

Quality Care Requires Quality Jobs:

Demand for health services and jobs is growing. Living wages and benefits are the best way recruit and retain highly qualified and dedicated workers.

 

Raise the Floor, Raise the Ceiling:

Healthcare wages run the spectrum. Like the rising tide that raises all ships, increasing the minimum wage lifts all wages up and is better for healthcare workers across the spectrum of care.

 

It’s Possible, the Money is Out There:

Corporations and major health systems can afford it. Elected officials have the ability to pass legislation to raise wages, close corporate tax loopholes, and make the rich pay their fair share in order to put money back into our communities and the services we need. They just need the will to do it!
