On December 19th, the BCFED had a run in with the Grinch and a band of rogue elves. They were handing out coal to low-wage workers this holiday season when what low-wage workers really need is a raise to $15/hr.
The event, planned by our steering committee, was a great awareness raiser for downtown shoppers in the pre-Christmas shopping frenzy. Hundreds of petition signatures were collected and the event received wide-spread media attention. Thank you to all who participated.
