The Fair Shot Oregon coalition has launched a campaign to advocate for a higher state minimum wage and paid sick days for all workers. The group of family, education, labor and women's groups is holding four campaign launch events across the state on Tuesday, including a 10 a.m. gathering at the Medford library, 205 S. Central Ave. Fair Shot Oregon advocates said workplace regulations are outdated and don't meet the needs of women and families. They have created a spoof video ad in which an 1800s aristocratic man pontificates about "a woman's place" as he follows a woman around while she works and cares for her family.
