Introduction

WE ARE BACK

What you will find here is a brief history of the national living wage movement, background materials such as ordinance summaries and comparisons, drafting tips, research summaries, talking points, and links to other living wage-related sites.

Visitors to the web site should keep in mind that there is no magic formula for a successful living wage campaign. Every campaign is different — dependent on the campaign leaders and their constituencies, local politics and power dynamics, the campaign coalition’s interests and scope, resources, experience, timelines, local and regional economies, etc.

Clearly, there is much to learn about running a living wage campaign that cannot be contained in a web site. However, as the movement chalks up wins, and leaders and organizers gain experience and become more savvy, we are building a body of material and experience that should be shared among living wage organizers everywhere.

ACORN and Living Wage

The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, is a large grassroots organization of low and moderate income people with over 200,000 members.

For 35 years, ACORN members have been organizing in their neighborhoods across the country around local issues such as affordable housing, safety, education, improved city services, and have taken the lead nationally on issues of affordable housing, tenant organizing, fighting banking and insurance discrimination, organizing workfare workers, and winning jobs and living wages.

In addition, we have led coalitions to win minimum wage increases. We feature companies on this website that support the philosophies of the living wage campaign.
