Raise the Wage is a grassroots movement of low-wage workers that seeks to undo decades of wage stagnation and growing inequality by raising the wage floor to more robust levels. The movement, which began in New York City in 2012 when fast food workers walked out of their jobs to demand $15 and a union, has spread from coast to coast, shaping the national conversation around wages and inequality, and helping push through dozens of state and local minimum wage policies.
I worked with the local Davis, CA chapter as a videographer in an effort to document the May Day parade which happened in solidarity nationwide. My film crew documented the protests in Sacramento and Berkeley and later compiled a promotional video to help raise awareness and overall messaging of the national campaign.
