On Monday Fair Shot For All joined out labor partners to celebrate Labor Day in Portland. The annual picnic was held at Oaks Park and saw around 20,000 attendees.
Elected officials each had the opportunity to speak and it was clear that Fair Shot had made an impact this past session. Our accomplishments on Ban the Box, Retirement Security, and Paid Sick Leave were mentioned over and over again. Representative Vega Pederson even held up our postcard!
Representative Hoyle said it best when she stated, "We're going to finish the Fair Shot agenda in 2016." It's time that we raise the minimum wage to lift hardworking Oregonians out of poverty. Let's hold these legislators accountable to the promises they made on Labor Day.
