LETTER: Rally for Working Class set for Friday in Vashon town

Do you struggle with low wages, access to food, homelessness, high rent, precarious work or discrimination? Are you feeling more and more isolated as working people as the island gets more and more wealthy? You are not alone. You are part of the working class, and we all share a common struggle.

Share in the struggle together on Friday, May 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the four-way stop. The Rally for the Working Class is for you. There will be fellow workers there raising public awareness of problems that affect your daily life. Let’s come together, build a community based upon our shared struggle and work for a better life for all.

The problems of gentrification and inequality will continue to get worse, and we will be the first to suffer the consequences. To fight back we must come together. Unity is how we win.

— Dominic Jovanovich
