Hundreds of Local 804 part-timers won a pay increase when the new $15 minimum wage went into effect in New York City on December 31.
Local 804 members played a key role in the Fight for 15 campaign that won these pay increases. Members signed petitions, held parking lot rallies, took our cause to Albany, and marched in the streets.
The Fight for 15 united Local 804 members with labor and community allies across the city and state—and it paid off.
$15 is now the minimum wage in New York City. The minimum wage also went up in Westchester and Long Island, but to just $13 an hour.
Local 804 members will keep up the Fight for $15 and fair pay for all workers.
