Special Guest Speaker: Mayra Juárez-Denis, Advocacy & Strategic Partnership Consultant, YWCA San Antonio 

Interviewed by YWCA Greater Austin’s Clinical Director, Laura Gomez-Horton

Over a quarter of America’s workers make less than $15 per hour. Women of color are disproportionately likely to make less than a living wage. We are going to talk about how raising the minimum wage to a living wage could be a powerful tool for closing the racial and gender wealth gaps, the history of the sub-minimum wage, and why paying a living wage is key to an equitable workplace.

  • What is Living Wage?
  • Minimum Wage
  • Racist History of Tipping
  • Closing the Racial & Gender Wealth Gap
  • Organizational Values

*Shout outs for: YWCA San Antonio has a campaign about wage equity.
