We had a very productive day at the State Capitol meeting with House and Senate Representatives regarding the Fair Shot Oregon Agenda.
Many retirees turned out to address $15 Minimum wage, Earned Paid Sick Days, Retirement Security, Ban the Box and End Profiling in scheduled meetings with individual Elected Officials.
We were pleased to find out that many, who we spoke with, were already aware of the Fair Shot Agenda items and we received as many positive as negative responses. Our efforts were successful but there is still more work to be done.
All in all this was time well spent and we encourage everyone to get involved with Fair Shot Oregon and its benefits all Oregonians.
