Child care workers joined the #MoralRevival day of action on Monday, September 12, 2016. We stood alongside hard-working Americans, the Fight for $15, Rev. William J. Barber, II, Repairers of the Breach, and others to demand that our elected leaders and candidates move to higher ground.
Our leaders must embrace morally just policies like a $15/hour living wage and health care for all, and stand against racism, sexism, discrimination and attacks on voting rights.
“We’re here today with a simple message for politicians and elected leaders: standing with the 64 million working people fighting for $15 per hour and union rights is the right thing to do,” said Elizabeth Rosario, a Florida childcare worker who is paid $13/hour. “We’re going to keep on marching and keep on speaking out until our elected leaders not only see the difference between right and wrong, but demonstrate that vision in their actions.”
