North Riverside Rally for Minimum Wage & Sick Pay

  • North Riverside Village Hall 2401 Desplaines Avenue North Riverside, IL, 60546 United States (map)

Join ABT West Suburban Chicago Chapter as they rally together for minimun wage and sick pay!

North Riverside is considering stripping away existing rights: paid sick days and the county minimum wage.

We need to communicate to the Village that this is unacceptable.

Why? Because...
-- 71% of North Riverside voters supported a higher state minimum wage in the recent referendum.
-- A Higher Minimum Wage Improves Local Economies
-- Workers Can’t Live on the Current Minimum Wage (40hrs/week = $17,000/year)
-- 83% of North Riverside voters supported paid sick days in Illinois
-- Paid Sick Days Improve Community Physical & Economic Health...

Join us to demonstrate before the next Village meeting on Monday, April 17th at 6:30.

We encourage you to stay for the Village Meeting afterward at 7:00. If you are a North Riverside resident, please consider speaking during public comment.

Bring protest signs and friends! We need to show up strong for workers rights. You do not need to be a North Riverside resident to attend.
