Every Worker Needs a Home

Join this march for better wages led by the Burgerville Workers Union and Community Alliance of Tenants (learn more in “Volunteer Spotlight” below) in honor of the nationwide Renter Week of Action and Assemblies. Unsure why folks might want to rally? The group provides some food for thought: “Seventy percent of fast food workers are over 20. They rarely make enough to meet the rent or basic costs of living. A third of those workers have at least some college education. One in four have children at home.” Meets at the MLK statue. EMILLY PRADO
