Worcester Community Labor Coalition Holding Minimum Wage Rally at City Hall

Tuesday, February 23, 2016

 

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.
