At the #15andfairness rally.
Our Kingston $15 and Fairness crew was out today, hitting 3 locations around the city to talk to workers about holiday pay, paid emergency leave days, and what's at stake in the coming election. #15andfairness #ygk #canlab
We canvassed outside Union this morning to tell commuters that Doug Ford plans to cancel the $15 minimum wage! Vote for #15andfairness candidates on Thursday.
We canvassed in Doug Ford's district today for #15andFairness. Saw lots of his signs. But the convos were great nonetheless. The area is very working class and racialized and many are receptive to minimum wage increases and the campaign's host of decent work proposals.
Make it fair! . We've seen more and more wealth concentrated in a smaller portion of the population . We may point to some exceptions but overall people have less opportunities . This hasn't happened by accident . Economic policies create the conditions for the few to succeed at the expense of many . But we can change that . We can implement policies which create the conditions for shared prosperity. We can build a more fair society . That's what the #15andfairness movement is all about. As a starting point let's ensure that people who work a job at the minimum earn a salary which they can live one. Let's make sure people have fair work conditions. Let's build a society based on shared prosperity . Together, let's make it fair!
I was proud to attend the #15andfairness rally yesterday! Everyone deserves decent work and fair wages (minimum wage of $15 and indexed to inflation)! Myself and many other MPP-elects have signed the pledge to keep the fight strong all the way into Queen's Park #change4better #tostpauls #jill4tsp Real pleasure to see so many of our #torontostpauls community there as well as community builders @sandela85 and @officialnaomiklein among others! We are in this together!
Great AGM with my comrades! We have a difficult four years ahead but boots to the ground! #cope343 #cope343solidarity #belouder #socialjustice #weownit #15andfairness #socialjustice #radical #cope343agm
A sample of the enormous crowd that assembled outside the Ministry of Labour, marching to Queen's Park for the #RallyForDecentWork. "The people united will never be defeated" chants and music from @socialisthiphop and Toronto's own Basque de Bamba. The people are demanding that Doug Ford keep his government's hands off the hard-won labour protections and wage increased of the recent past. Ford previously promised to cancel the $15 wage if elected, and the entire party voted against these labour laws (Bill 148) and we're very vocal about their opposition to the new workers' rights. The rally was organized by the OFL and #15andfairness as an opening salvo for a growing coalition opposed to Ford's austerity hungry government, beckoning to serve corporate wealth and power. #15andfairness #blacklivesmatter #BLMTO #decentwork #onpoli #onelxn

#15andfairness does hip hop. We’re coming for you Doug.
Getting my politics on #15andfairness
I love to watch performances from strong women in the Brazilian community. They have the courage to stand up for what they believe, and I don’t even need to mention that their energy lifts everyone up. Baque de Bamba at the #15andfairness rally was the best! #brazil #maracatu #toronto #rally #playinginthestreet
We were at the Rally for Decent Work today. We joined 1500 others from across Ontario and we also met some cool educators from district 12. We were united in saying that cuts hurt all of us and that everyone deserves access to decent work. #osstf #osstfd19 #15andfairness
