Webinar with Senator Tom Harkin Thursday

From our friends at the Coalition on Human Needs

Beginning at 3:00PM, Senator Tom Harkin, Chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee and the lead Senate sponsor of legislation to raise the minimum wage will speak with others on their plans for the Fair Minimum Wage Act.

A large coalition of groups is coming together to make 2014 a year of action to raise the minimum wage.

The webinar will focus on the latest facts about how the minimum wage increase will help workers, families, and the economy, how to dispel myths spread by opponents, and how to join in actions from local events to social media campaigns. You can ask questions and will get resource materials you'll need.

Additional speakers include:

  • Christine Owens: Executive Director of the National Employment Law Project, Chris is a national spokesperson and expert on worker rights, including the minimum wage and unemployment insurance
  • Moderator-Ellen Teller: Director of Government Relations, Food Research and Action Center and Chair of the Coalition on Human Needs' Board of Directors
