Fast food workers struggling for a wage of $15 an hour and the right to unionize participated in a nonviolent civil disobedience action last week.
This is Emily Nguyen (ponytail) and Kalia Vang (visor). Emily is 20 years-old and a sophomore at Sacramento City College. She’s worked in fast food for a year and a half and makes California minimum wage ($9 an hour). She says, “I’m just working to breathe, to stay alive. I’m not really living life. We won’t stop till we meet our destination, till our wages go up.”

Got an email asking if we could help spread the word about Ger Vang, who has gone missing. Spread the word you guys, this is what we do.
Ger Vang a bubbly vibrant young girl has been missing since Friday, July 20, 2013. She was last seen by a co-worker as her shift ended at 11:30pm at Mall of America. Her friends and family has been trying to reach her on her cell phone in hopes of a safe return. However, it’s been days without a single phone call from Vang and she hasn’t been to work according to her employers.
