Statement from President Bob Schoonover on our nation's first statewide $15 min wage law:

Today, working families across California are celebrating the signing of Senate Bill 3, which establishes a pathway to a $15 minimum wage by 2022. This historic legislation will lift California's working families out of poverty, and transform the lives of the 6.5 million Californians who earn less than $15 an hour.

Statewide $15/hr. and Supreme Court update from SEIU Local 721 President Bob Schoonover

Sisters and Brothers of SEIU Local 721,

This week began with SEIU representatives joining our elected officials in Sacramento to announce California's plan for a higher wage. The Fight For $15 that Local 721 has led is set to change the lives of millions in the Golden State and across the country. The earth shattering news continued yesterday when the Supreme Court split on Friedrichs v. CTA, the case designed to silence our unified voice by overturning 40 years of precedent. 

Now more than ever, all eyes are upon you.
