UE150 Joins Poor People’s Campaign Low Wage Workers Assembly in Raleigh

Mar 14, 2024

On Saturday, March 2, UE Local 150 members joined the Poor People’s March, held to commemorate the 800 people who die each day in the U.S. from poverty and low wages.​

Local 150 President Sekia Royall, who spoke at the rally, said, “Us workers are really struggling to hold on to our jobs. We are burnt out from working overtime and have not been recognized for our work to keep the state afloat. We have been demanding that the state workers get at least $20 an hour or a 20 percent raise to survive.”
