There is nothing but a lack of social vision to prevent us from paying an adequate wage to every American, whether he is a hospital worker, laundry worker, maid, or day laborer.
-- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In the memory of Dr. King you are invited to participate in the Living Wage Breakfast taking place prior to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day activities to begin at Asbury United Methodist Church at 10:00 a.m. (Note the breakfast will be at Trinity Lutheran Church, see above.)

The purpose of this breakfast is to:
  • Highlight Dr. King’s challenge to America
  • Celebrate Our 2006 Legislative Victory when the W.Va. Legislature approved an increase in the Minimum Wage.
  • Prepare for the current West Virginia legislative initiative to expand the law to include more people.
  • Demonstrate Support for action by the U.S. Congress.
Please RSVP to West Virginia Council of Churches by email- bob@wvcc.org - or by calling 304-344-3141. The donation cost of the breakfast is $10.00.
