Clarke Plaza, Saturday June 14th, Signature Gather, Free Concert, Living Wage  

 
Hello Friends,

I will be out gathering signatures in the area of Clarke Plaza at 3rd and E Streets in Eureka tomorrow, saturday June 14th form noon til 2 pm.  There will be live music there.

I will be gathering signatures for both the Eureka Fair Compensation Act ( a $10.00 an hour minimum wage that is desperately needed by our working people) and for the Eureka Youth Protection Act (to end themilitary recruitment of our children under 18 in Eureka.)  Our
brothers and sisters in Arcata have already validated their initiative and we need to do the same.

Please come join me if you wish to become involved.  We need unpaid volunteers that can spend 2 to 3 hours per week gathering signatures in public spaces.  You must be a registered voter within the Eureka city limits to gather signatures, though others may help us in other
ways.

thank you and have a peaceful day,
Bill

PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND COMRADES IN EUREKA

Court: Cintas Corp. ignored Hayward work laws
Tyche Hendricks, Chronicle Staff Writer

Friday, June 13, 2008

In a precedent-setting ruling for cities across California, a state appeals court this week upheld Hayward’s living wage ordinance as constitutional and ordered Cintas Corp., a laundry business that had contracted with the East Bay city, to pay $1.4 million in back wages, interest and penalties to 219 workers.
