Following the AFL-CIO’s first National Summit on Raising Wages, the Metro Washington Council AFL-CIO and the metro-area labor movement will launch a campaign aimed at creating an economy that works for everyone. As one of the pilot cities in the Raising Wages campaign, Washington will be among the first in the nation to experiment with implementation of the policy prescriptions produced by discussions at the National Summit on Raising Wages. “I am honored to announce the kickoff of Washington’s 2015 Raising Wages campaign,” said Metro Washington Council AFL-CIO President Jos Williams. “The National Summit on Raising Wages laid clear the challenges – but more importantly, the opportunities – facing DC-area families. Allies united behind the idea of a Raising Wages Agenda have come together in a collective voice, and are ready to get to work.”
