A meeting with supermarket cashier-consultants was organized by the Center for Progress.

At the meeting, we heard detailed descriptions of working conditions and pay directly from people who are working themselves or have similar work experience in the past.
Whenever we talk about minimum wages and harsh working conditions, one of the first associations that comes to mind is the cashier-consultant job. Stories from people’s personal experiences were even harder to listen to.

Each new meeting with different groups of employed people, each street survey and each subsequent communication with the public convinces us of the truth and necessity of our struggle to – define and increase the minimum wage hourly and sectorally.
