Oregonians for 15 is the petition committee and coalition that is working to put a $15 minimum wage on Oregon’s 2016 ballot. It has become more than clear that our legislators aren’t going to do the right thing. They are going to ignore the numerous cost of living and living wage studies that have been on the State Oregon. They aren’t going to do the right thing for Oregon’s working families by passing a statewide $15 minimum wage. So it is being taken to ballot. Support Oregonians for 15 today and help win a $15 minimum wage for 700,000 low-wage working Oregonians!
When it became clear that last April Oregon’s state legislature was not going to pass a minimum wage increase, Oregonians for 15—a coalition of labor unions, community groups, faith organizations, and small businesses—filed to put $15 on the ballot.
On Saturday September 26, 2015 volunteers in over 20 cities across the State of Oregon collected thousands of signatures as part of a kick off day of action for the signature gathering campaign. But you don’t have to run across someone on the street to sign the petition. You can also download it right in your home and sign it from your comfy chair!
