WASHINGTON – Today, Democratic House leadership followed through on including a $15 minimum wage in the House reconciliation bill – a huge success for the Sunrise Movement, labor unions, civil rights organizations and activists who have strongly been pushing this popular Democratic objective forward for years. 

“The power of working people across the country has shifted the political terrain to make this victory possible, but our movement will not stop until a $15 minimum wage is firmly passed into law,” said Varshini Prakash, Executive Director of the Sunrise Movement. “Our movement will be watching closely to hold Democrats accountable to passing this provision in the final stimulus package, as well as stimulus checks for all. If they don’t, Democrats will have to answer to a coalition of labor unions, activists, and the young people who organized like hell to get them elected.”

This follows the Sunrise Movement’s earlier statement calling for the addition of a $15 minimum wage in the reconciliation bill.
