Austin Interfaith Fights for City Temp Worker Wage Standard

Said Strategy Team member Kayvon Sabourian:

'Austin Interfaith is pleased that City Council, at the urging of Austin Interfaith institutions, is looking to bring the city's 'Temporary Workers' under the City's living wage policy...To be clear, we are talking about thousands of long-term, perennial and seasonal city jobs — jobs such as our crossing guards — not one-time gigs or strictly youth jobs. We know that in today's economy, more and more Americans find themselves with no option but to cobble together such seasonal, part-time and contingent jobs to make ends meet..."
