MN Corporations raise over $50 million for the Super Bowl, and claim poverty when it comes to living wages for working families

This morning, Feb. 8, at 9am there was a hearing in the ongoing corporate lawsuit against the City of Minneapolis regarding the $15 ordinance. Destinee Bingham, a Minneapolis Burger King employee and leader with CTUL who has been organizing for better wages and working conditions, shared the frustration that working people are feeling knowing that corporate lobbyists are working to stop the $15 min wage they fought so hard to win – “It’s disgusting that corporations can afford to raise $53 million dollars for partying and entertaining their rich friends over the last couple of weeks alone during the Super Bowl, but claim that they can’t afford to pay living wages for their workers.”
