Denver, tonight we made history! Our Denver City Council just unanimously voted to raise the minimum wage to $15 and beyond for all workers in our city. This is a huge step forward in fighting inequality and building a stronger Denver where all of us can thrive.
From Denverite, “As a janitor whose job it is to clean the buildings of the wealthiest corporations in our city, my coworkers and I feel overloaded,” said Pedro Carillo, who spoke in favor of the bill through an interpreter. “Raising our wage makes it more affordable for us to survive.”
