Below is a video testimony given at "The Revival: Time for a Moral Revolution of Values" Philadelphia service on July 25, 2016, about the fight for a 15 dollar an hour living wage. A summary transcript of the video follows:
My name is Shymara Jones and I have been working at Popeyes for six years. I currently make $8.50 an hour. This is not enough for me to afford an apartment nor is it enough for me to be able to clothe my growing child. The only time I was ever given a raise was when we went on strike. We need to work to organize labor and form unions to help us to advocate for a living wage.
