Worcester Community Labor Coalition Holding Minimum Wage Rally at City Hall

Fight for 15 Rally to take place at City hall

The Worcester Community Labor Coalition will be holding a rally on Tuesday, February 23rd at 4:30 p.m. at City Hall, located at 455 Main St. in Worcester. The group will rally in hopes of getting companies to pay employers at least $15 per hour.

"If the City is handling our tax dollars to attract companies, we have a right to make sure these companies pay $15 per hour," the group said in a flier promoting the rally.

The rally will take place prior to a meeting of the Worcester City Council Economic Development Subcommittee hearing to discuss Tax Increment Financing (TIF).

TIF is a Massachusetts program designed to encourage local economic growth and job creation by attracting businesses through tax breaks.

"TIF programs are supposed to promote a healthy local economy. But we need to make one thing clear, a healthy local economy consists of good jobs that pay at least $15 per hour," added the group.

The rally and hearing is free and open to the public. The hearing starts at 5 p.m.
