Folio: The Seattle Athenaeum Downtown
Wed., Sept. 13, 7 p.m. 2017
Seattle's own labor activist Jonathan Rosenblum's new book Beyond $15: Immigrant Workers, Faith Activists, and the Revival of the Labor Movement begins with the first successful movement—which Rosenblum himself helped lead—to raise the minimum wage to $15. He'll explain how the initiative prevailed thanks to a coalition of workers, religious leaders, and community organizers. In this talk, he'll participate in a discussion with other "New Left" politicians and activists in Seattle.
