Minimum wage campaign

Jabari – “A $15 hour minimum wage by 2020”

We caught up with Jabari while he was by Lake Merritt, gathering signatures for a minimum wage ballot initiative for a $15 hour minimum wage by 2020. He agreed that by then, rents will have gone up so much that the minimum wage would be around what it is now. Some of his other comments “A home is a necessity…. The richest person in the world, they not going to go home and sleep on the floor…. There’s so many abandoned buildings that could be turned into homeless shelters…. Hopefully it doesn’t get to violence… That’s what it’s about, man: Just keeping your head free and stay chillaxed.”
