Classism Workshop: Selling Ourselves by the Hour

Other Politics

First Christian Church partners with Sunny Matthews and Ginger Bakos of Dimension of Isms present a 3-part series on Racism, Sexism and Classism. Part 3 of our 3 part series: Racism-Sexism-Classism

Join us for Pt. 3 of our Dimensions of Isms Workshop series: Classism: Selling Ourselves by the Hour

Work hard. Get ahead. Not so fast.
It takes more than just a job to escape poverty in the US.
Nowhere in the US can someone working full time at a minimum wage job afford a two bedroom apartment.

In fact, on average in the US, you would need to make over $19/hr to afford rent, and that is 2.5 times the current minimum wage.

Most Americans don't work minimum wage jobs, though, so it's no problem, right? Actually, the average American worker makes just a hair over $15. Which means the average American, can't afford housing... now tack on, child care, lights, groceries, gasoline, etc., and just living past one pay check seems like an impossibility.

So why doesn't it change?

If you would like to be a part of the conversation that leads to greater understanding and affirming the humanity in us all, we invite you to be a part of this workshop.

This workshop is open to the public. We do ask that you RSVP.

Grass roots leaders have a unique connection to our local communities, and a responsibility to educate themselves in order to be as effective and inclusive as possible and do no harm.

Cost will be $20 per workshop or attend all 3 for $50. Contact us through messenger or email for more information!
