Ordinary People Coming Together to Do Extraordinary Things"- Barack Obama
"Walmart Worker Pickets RNC-Tampa" -Remember me-Fight For Living Wages-
by Karla Jordan-freelance writer/photographer/activist
The Republican national convention was held in Tampa, Florida for the Presidential Campaign 2012. As a low wage earner,a cashier held a sign that read,
"Remember Me" Fight For Living Wages!"
At the time she was not sure if Mitt Romney would win or Barack Obama would be re-elected. So, feeling as though the super wealthy magnet of the Staples empire would forget the little guy. She came up with picketing at the entrance to the Republican National Convention in front of the Bank of America, Her belief was it would cause the delegates and law makers to remember us-the cashiers who put in 40 hour work weeks and sometimes are unable to meet our basic necessities in life. She wants America to Fight For Living Wages.
Like the cashier from Walmart, it is a worthy cause to Fight For The Living Wage not just at Walmart but for every little guy from Taco Bell, KFC, Dollar Stores, Publix, Krogers, Albertsons, Outlet Mall Stores, and many others that work at low wage earning jobs.
This fight has just begun.

Our Cause-The Living Wage
I have built this site so that we can come together to bring about laws that change our wage and hour from minimum wage to a mandatory minimum standard of living -"The Living Wage". Together we can make this happen. Please feel free to use this site as you would your own and we are glad you are visiting our site. This is our online meeting place, where we organize our activities, share ideas, and publicize our mission.
We work together to make our cause of The Living Wage-a mandatory minimum income- known, to reach out to other groups who share our vision. Whether you’re ready to lend a hand at one of our activities or have photos or articles to share about a recent event, here’s the place to do it.
Are You one of the 47% of the People?
