"I took the challenge to stand in solidarity with the millions of workers who support their families on minimum wage and to raise awareness about the nearly two million AAPIs who live in poverty. While inequality has run rampant, working families are faced with impossibly difficult decisions every day. It is time to rebuild the middle class. It is time for a LIVING wage."
-Jenny Ho, Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance-D.C. Chapter
NCAPA members joined the #LiveTheWage challenge July 24-30 to raise awareness about the growing inequality in the U.S. July 24 marked five years since the last federal minimum wage increase.
