Description


About the Race


We’re building a scrappy and innovative operation to fight for workers' rights and raise millions of workers out of poverty, protect and expand democracy by teaching subminimum wage workers how to organize across the state to empower other subminimum wage workers to take control of their futures, get organized, and vote themselves a raise in the 2024 elections.


One Fair Wage is a National Organization fighting to raise wages, improve working conditions in the service sector, and end all subminimum wages in the United States. With the Great Resignation, millions of workers are refusing to work for subminimum wages, employers are raising wages to recruit staff, and the political landscape to advance policy to raise wages has changed dramatically. Given the historic moment, One Fair Wage has launched an ambitious campaign to advance bills and ballot measures in 25 states nationwide to raise wages and end subminimum wages in the US - and, through the process, engage millions of unlikely, low-wage worker voters politically. One Fair Wage is thus advancing policy, voter engagement, employer engagement, and culture shift activities to ultimately lift millions of tipped workers out of poverty nationwide and engage them in the political process that governs their lives.



What Will You Do?


One Fair Wage is looking for energetic, outgoing, and accountable individuals who are good verbal communicators, and go-getters who are not afraid to approach strangers, who can engage the public to disseminate information and get people to sign our petition by posting up in high-traffic areas, knocking doors and attending events.  


This position offers an opportunity to make a difference by advocating for important causes through petition circulation. We provide comprehensive training and support to ensure success in this role. Join our team today and be part of positive change!


This position will: 

  • Circulate petitions throughout  Phoenix, Arizona
  • Collect as many valid signatures as possible 
  • Maintain a validity rate of 70%
  • Collect voter registration when necessary 
  • Engage with a combination of community members, leaders, and affected workers to recruit additional paid and volunteer capacity for our organizing department
  • Identify and attend high-volume events to collect signatures


Who Are You?

  • Independent, go-getter with great communication skills who takes initiative
  • Passion for economic justice and a commitment to fighting for workers and people on a subminimum wage, including youth, people on disability, and tipped workers
  • Energetic and Innovative
  • Have a driver’s license and a reliable car
  • Be able to work weekends and irregular hours as required.
