Cup of Joe Gives Jolt to Better Wages!

Rosebud Coffee
2302 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, California 91107

[Pasadena, CA] (November 2, 2018) — Pasadenans Organizing for Progress (POP!), will kick-off its “Protect Pasadena Wages” campaign, on Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10 with a free cup of joe and live music for every self-identified low wage earner and labor supporter.

Host Rosebud Coffee, at 2302 E. Colorado Blvd., a proud supporter of a higher minimum wage, will also present spoken word artists and information booths from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday and from 8 to 10 a.m. on Saturday.

This event is the first in a series of activities advocating passage in February, 2019 by the Pasadena City Council to increase Pasadena’s minimum wage to $15 an hour on July 1, 2020.

The Pasadena City Council voted unanimously in 2016 to raise the minimum wage, setting a goal of $15 an hour by July 2020. But unlike the LA City and LA County ordinances, Pasadena requires the City Council to vote in February 2019 whether to continue the path to $15 an hour by 2020. Three wage increases have occurred since the ordinance was passed, yet the remaining two increases are in jeopardy unless the Pasadena City Council votes to approve them.

Since enacted, Pasadena’s minimum wage ordinance has benefited thousands of individuals and families who live and work in the city. POP! Co-Chair and Board Member Kim Douglas met with many low-income workers.

“They often describe how the additional income has improved their families’ lives,” she said. “They struggle less to meet basic needs and have more money to spend in our city.”
