Home care workers are a powerful voice in the Fight for $15 and we aren’t afraid to take to the streets to make our voices heard. But, day-to-day, we work alone with our clients. We don’t see coworkers, we don’t go to a shared workplace, and – when it comes to taking action – we can’t walk out on our clients.
#Take15for15 is about taking 15 minutes out of your day to #FightFor15 and raise awareness of our movement to win higher wages and union rights. It’s about home care workers standing up, where we are, with our clients or families, and making our voices heard.
#Take15for15 is one- or two-person protests for 15 minutes. We capture our action with a photo and post it online to share with other home care workers and the world.
- Make a sign that says a little bit about who you are. Include #Take15for15.
- Take a photo – alone, with your client, with your family, or with anyone else who supports the Home Care Fight for $15.
- Post the photo to Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, with the hashtag #Take15for15.
