D.C. Town Hall to Tell Gray: Sign the Living Wage Bill

D.C. Town Hall to Tell Gray: Sign the Living Wage Bill

On Tuesday, Aug. 27, hundreds of residents, union members, faith leaders and City Council members who back the bill will speak out about why retail workers in the District of Columbia deserve a fair living wage. Join them at 6:30 p.m. EDT at the Pennsylvania Avenue Baptist Church, 3000 Pennsylvania Ave., S.E.

More than a month after the D.C. City Council passed a living wage bill for workers at big-box stores, District Mayor Vincent C. Gray has yet to say if he will sign or veto the Large Retailer Accountability Act (LRAA).

D.C. residents have mounted an email and phone campaign to urge the mayor to listen to voters, not Walmart lobbyists and lawyers, and sign the bill. Next week’s town hall meeting will deliver the same message.

In the meantime, click here to send Gray an email urging him to sign the living wage law.
