$15 Now - Community Hearing on the City of Portland's Fair Wage Policy

Categories:
Date: 
Mon, 10/20/2014 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Description: 

15 Now PDX and Portland Jobs with Justice will hold a community hearing  to address the City of Portland's Fair Wage Policy.

That policy was adopted by the City in 1995 thanks to a living wage campaign led by Jobs with Justice. The minimum wage set by the Fair Wage Policy affects custodians, security guards, parking attendants, and other workers at
companies that contract with the City, and is currently $10.38/hr plus $1.92 for benefits, for a total compensation package of $12.30/hr..

The $15 Now movement is spreading rapidly and with good reason. According to a 2014 study by the Alliance for a Just Society, a single worker with no children living in the state of Oregon needs to earn at least $15.96 per hour “to meet basic needs and maintain some ability to deal with emergencies and plan ahead.” Clearly the City of Portland's current Fair Wage Policy falls well short of a living wage.

This is a great family event, as there is both a 5K fun run and walk open to all ages and a 400m kids’ run open to ages seven and under. In addition, there will be music and a raffle. All profits from this event will go directly to Dalton’s family.

This year, the event is sponsoring Dalton Reno, a 22-month old from Salem living with SCID. At eight weeks old, Dalton developed severe skin infections; despite help from pediatricians and dermatologists, they would not go away. Dalton's family was referred to the Doernbecher hematology/oncology unit. There, they looked at Dalton's blood work.
