Living Wage

  • In 2014, Communities United leaders knocked on over 25,000 doors in Albany Park and Belmont Cragin to mobilize voters to the polls and vote "yes" on a referendum asking if the state should raise the minimum wage. The referendum passed with approval from two-thirds of Illinois' voters, totaling 2.2 million supporters throughout Illinois
  • As an active participant in the national "Fight for 15" movement, hundreds of Communities United leaders participated in actions, press conferences and rallies nationally to elevate the need for a living wage for all
  • Launched "Fight for Our Neighborhoods", a neighborhood focused campaign to increase the wage of McDonald's employees to $15/hr along with recognizing the right to form a Union
