That’s how much Howard Schultz, the CEO of Starbucks, makes!

And guess what he said on Wednesday about businesses unable to afford a $15 an hour minimum wage: “That would not be the case at Starbucks, but I suspect that most companies, especially small and midsized companies, would not be able to afford it.”

Ok, Howard, then stop hiding behind small businesses and pay your own workers 15 now!

15 Now, a national campaign fighting for 15, is growing. Last Saturday, 21 cities participated in the March for $15, including a high-energy march in Seattle.

We can win but we need your help to make sure Starbucks and other big corporations pay 15 and guarantee that all working people receive the wages they deserve.

We need you to become a 15 Now Sustainer today.  Our goal is to have 1,000 15 Now Sustainers who give $15 (or more) each month in order provide the regular funding we need to run a winning campaign.

Don’t wait any longer, click here to donate and become a 15 Now Sustainer today!
