MiamiNight_Sign-Pic_feat.jpgOn November 10th, over 2,000 underpaid, hard-working Floridians took the streets to say they’re tired of not being able to support their families with their wages. In more than 20 cities throughout the sunshine state, Floridians came together to demand action from state legislators and presidential candidates to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Plaza_NicoleCalvaire_100x80.jpgLast Thursday, a group of nursing home caregivers from Plaza Health Network, visited their corporate headquarters to demand a minimum wage of $15 an hour and challenge their new CEO, Elaine Bloom, to take the Minimum Wage Challenge by living on their wages for one week. 

Fernando_Cuevas_feat.jpgAt a very young age, Fernando Cuevas realized that the only way to fight injustices against workers was to stand together and fight for our rights. For 30 years he dedicated his life to organize and empower workers throughout the country, from the fields in Ohio and Michigan, to hospitals and nursing homes in Florida. This is the story of an 1199SEIU Florida organizer and his inspiring legacy

09282015_MinimumWageChallenge_RepThompson_100px.jpgIf our politicians really care about Florida’s workers, they should know what it is like to live in our shoes, trying to feed our families, pay rent and do our work on a minimum wage. Eighteen legislators in Florida and our Executive Vice President, Monica Russo, accepted the Minimum Wage Challenge, and last week they lived on minimum wage for five days.

This is a result of the lobbying of low-wage workers, including 1199SEIU Florida members, who went to Tallahassee a couple of weeks ago to ask state legislators for a living wage of $15 an hour.
