What. A. Day.

When Republican presidential candidates kicked off their debate on November 10, they found that the stage had already been set — by the Fight for $15 movement.

Workers in home care, child care, fast-food, and other industries forced the issue of low pay into the national spotlight with a day of protests, rallies and strikes in more than 500 cities all across the country.

Home care workers like Aretha Peters in Cleveland took to the streets in support of striking fast-food workers, then gathered to send their message to elected leaders and politicians: “We are calling on our elected representatives at all levels to make sure Cleveland workers have a fair shot,” Aretha said. From Cleveland and Tampa to Los Angeles and Denver, home care workers have been a strong voice in the Fight for $15, and we aren’t stopping now. We’re putting politicians on notice and telling them: Come get my vote!
