The grassroots strategy and successful media campaign implemented by 15 Now in Portland and throughout the State of Oregon has steered the entire statewide conversation on raising the minimum wage toward the number $15. This work has led to tangible victories like a $15 minimum wage for all Multmonah County employees, a $15 Fair Wage Policy for full-time city workers and contract workers in Portland, and $15 for over 20,000 homecare workers in Oregon represented by SEIU Local 503. These victories for $15 benefit the lives of real working people and their families. With your help, we can win even more victories, bigger victories, and Oregon can become the first state to win a $15 minimum wage!

While Oregon is already the first state to have a serious conversation about a statewide $15 minimum wage. It is unlikely the state legislature will pass $15. But we can still win at the ballot.

That is why the Oregonians for 15 coalition filed an initiative and is collecting signatures to put a statewide $15 minimum wage on Oregon’s November 2016 ballot. To help achieve this historic victory in the Fight for $15, Oregon’s labor movement and the low-wage workers leading this campaign are going to need your help. Big business is going to throw down with the full weight of their unimaginable wealth in an effort to prevent this victory. That is why we are asking to you donate directly to the petition committee today and help Oregonians for 15 get on the ballot and win!
