EPISO, Texas IAF Take Wage Fight Local

1508-TIAF-Minimum-Wage-Proposals-Texas-Tribune-300x277.jpgThanks to the intervention of Border Interfaith and EPISO, the City of El Paso just passed a wage raise for its lowest paid municipal workers in its budget — from $9.86 to $10.35.  This is a first step in El Paso for a larger raise in upcoming years, part of a methodical campaign to raise the wages of Texas workers.  EPISO & Border Interfaith additionally succeeded in compelling the El Paso County Commissioners to increase the wages of their lowest paid workers by 50 cents to $10 / hour.  Commissioners pledged to work with the organization to increase wages higher over the next two years.
