Living Wage Coalition releases Voter Guide on candidates for San Francisco Board of Supervisors
For the November 4, 2014, election, the San Francisco Living Wage Coalition issued a living wage voter guide on supervisorial candidates. You can find it here.
The Coalition mailed a questionnaire to each candidate regarding their positions on issues that impact low-wage workers.
By the deadline, 11 of the 17 candidates responded to these questions. (Their responses are in an attached legal-sized spreadsheet).
The questionnaire tested the knowledge of candidates on San Francisco’s living wage laws and on job training programs for parents in the welfare-to-work transition.
The text of living wage laws (the Minimum Compensation Ordinance and the Health Care Accountability Ordinance) and other information is available at http://sfgsa.org/index.aspx?page=391
The Coalition is circulating the voter guide to its membership and also distributing it to the press and to the public.
The San Francisco Living Wage Coalition is a grass-roots movement of low-wage workers and their allies fighting for economic justice. The San Francisco Living Wage Coalition is a nonpartisan organization that neither supports nor opposes any political party or candidate for office.
