SEIU members across the city of St. Louis have turned up the pressure in recent weeks in hopes of convincing employers to do the right thing and maintain the $10/hour city minimum wage increase, which lawmakers and Governor Greitens are set to rip away from tens of thousands of workers on August 28.
City-wide sticker days have raised the visibility of the campaign in our shops, while the over 100 local businesses that have pledged to save the raise is keeping this issue alive across our community.
In addition to sticker days, workers have circulated petitions and marched on management to deliver them and make sure our message got through.
Time is running out and we must keep the pressure on. If you work in St. Louis talk to your steward about how you can get involved in the fight to Save the Raise today!
