15 Now Interview with NYC Activists
On June 3rd, podcast The Nostalgia Trap conducted an in-depth interview with 15 Now NYC members Eljeer Hawkins, Cora Bergatiños, and James Hoff.
Description from The Nostalgia Trap website:
“Why is the minimum wage so ridiculously low in 21st century America? My guests today… are part of the 15Now movement, which is seeking to drastically shift the conversation about the minimum wage in cities across the U.S. In Seattle, the movement recently achieved a major victory, in part due to the leadership of Kshama Sawant, a city council member and one of the first socialists elected to public office in a U.S. city in decades. Our conversation addresses the economic and political context of minimum wage activism and assesses the prospects for the 15Now movement as it sets its sights on cities like San Francisco and New York.”
