Seattle living wage campaigner speaks in Cov

From Coventry Socialists:

We are delighted to bring to Coventry guest speaker Ginger Jentzen from the $15now campaign in Seattle. Ginger is one of the leading organisers for $15 Now, the campaign which mobilised the grassroots effort to win a $15 / hour minimum wage in Seattle. She organised the national $15 Now conference and was an elected coordinator of one of the $15 Now action groups. The meeting is organised by the National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) in Coventry and comes on the eve of a public sector strike that could involve over 1 million workers, fighting for higher wages.
Do not miss this incredible opportunity to hear how workers in the USA won a fantastic victory, how the movement is growing there and how we can develop the fight in Coventry and the UK. NOT TO BE MISSED!

(Don’t panic!! Meeting is starting earlier to avoid a clash with World Cup semi final at 9pm!)
