In my years fighting for working people, I witnessed something on July 24 I never thought I would see: low-wage workers from as many as 10 different campaigns coming together as one for better wages,Moncler Jackets Women, meaningful benefits and -- most of all -- respect,Moncler Jackets Men.
It was an amazing sight,Spyder Men Ski Jackets. Workers from car washes, supermarkets, airports and laundries, joining hands with domestic workers, day care providers and even locked-out Con Edison employees, speaking and demonstrating in a single voice,Spyder Women Ski Gloves.
It was our piece of the National Day of Action, where groups across the country staged rallies and demonstrations for workers' rights and raising the minimum wage,Spyder Kids Ski Jackets. Helping low-wage workers and boosting the minimum wage helps all of us in the 99 percent and strengthens the economy now, instead of waiting for help to trickle down,Spyder Men Ski Pants.
Here in New York, it began with a press conference in Herald Square in Midtown Manhattan, where workers told how they try to support their families while making $4 or $5 and hour -- well under the ridiculously low $7.25 minimum wage -- with no overtime, benefits or paid sick days,Spyder Kids Ski Pants.
Three mayoral candidates were there,Spyder Coats, along with a lot of politicians. Everyone was grateful for their support, but the day belonged to the workers.
