What a year in the #fightfor15

Since April, CCI members have taken action two Fridays a month by rallying outside of a local McDonald’s to Fight for $15 during our Fast Food Fridays. Thank you!

The response from the public has been overwhelmingly supportive. Because of you, we’re changing the dialogue around a living wage here in Des Moines and in Iowa. Not to mention we had tons of fun doing it!

The next step in our Fight for $15 is to push for a local ordinance to raise the wage in Polk County! 

We’ll be in contact about this more after the new year but wanted to give you a sneak peek of some exciting new stuff on the horizon!

We hope you’ll continue to stand with us.

Don’t live in Polk County? That’s ok! We want other counties to pass living wage ordinances too. Get the ball rolling by writing a letter to your local county supervisors and tell them why your county needs to raise the wage. Questions about what a living wage ordinance is? Call Maddie at 515.282.0484.

Thank you for all you do.
