On July 1st, the minimum wage for hourly workers in DC will increase to $14.00; $4.45 for tipped workers. That’s also the first day of business tax collection for the Paid Family Leave benefits program, so the DC Just Pay Coalition has planned an Outreach Blitz June 28-30 to make sure workers know their rights. “We’re looking for 150 people to come out and hit the streets with us this weekend,” says Jobs with Justice DC Executive Director Elizabeth Falcon. “We'll have outreach events from Friday to Sunday across DC's neighborhoods.” The Coalition
will be doing outreach to workers about the new minimum wage, wage theft and resources for victims of sexual harassment, as well as engaging managers on the Paid Family Leave tax collection and their responsibilities. RSVP here.
