What we want

Earned Sick & Safe Time

We want to guarantee that every worker in Minneapolis earns paid time off to care for themselves or their families when they get sick or are threatened with domestic violence.

Fair Workweek

We want to restore a fair workweek by limiting last-minute scheduling changes and by promoting access to full time hours.

An End to Wage Theft

We want to make sure everyone gets the pay that they are due when they are owed it.

Minimum Wage

We want everyone in Minneapolis to be paid enough to make ends meet, a wage of $15/hour or more.

What’s going on in your neighborhood

We are the people who ensure that #MPLSWorks.

We clean stores, serve food, and care for the elderly. We work in retail, we raise kids, we plow snow. We take calls, we clean windows, we teach, we protect, we build, we drive, we lift, and we make Minneapolis the city it is. Our city runs on the talent, sweat, courage, and creativity of working people.

Right now, there is much we are proud of, but still much we need to change. Our city is held back by racial inequities. Women are stifled by lower pay. New Americans are excluded from jobs. At a time of record corporate profits, CEOs award themselves higher pay, while too many of our families work full-time and still live in poverty. Too many of us are forced to choose between caring for our kids or running to one of our multiple jobs just to pay the bills. Too many of us get ripped off by not getting paid what we’re due.

We can make Minneapolis work. We can build a more equitable city. We can create more opportunities. We can raise our standards. But we can’t do it without you.

Let the City Council know
