Sioux Falls, SD Takes Actions to Raise Minimum Wage

CNV Sioux Falls, SD Action (4)

CNV Sioux Falls began the week with a showing to the public of the movie “Inequality For All”

Then on Saturday September 27 they held a vigil to address the “violence” of paying people a minimum wage that is not a living wage. South Dakota is going to vote on increasing the minimum wage to $8.50 (still not a living wage) this November. The Just Peace Group decided to hand out flyers with information about why people should vote to increase the minimum wage. They chose to hold their vigil in front of one of their local retail businesses that does pay more than the minimum wage, spotlighting that business and showing people that it can be done without the business “closing its doors”.

Their project continues beyond the week of actions as well. The first two weeks in October they will have an economics professor talk in their Adult Forum about the importance of raising the minimum wage in this state.
