To any progressive Artists out in the community The Eureka Fair Wage Act Needs some help.

The Eureka Fair Wage Act or as our official ballot title issued by the city, "Minimum Wage Ordinance" will raise the minimum wage in our city to $12 an hour for larger employers. A large employer is 25 or more employees. We started this initiative as a reaction to bad economic times in Eureka,(we are 5% above the state wide average for poverty) and the invasion of our city by Walmart. We are looking for graphic artists interested in helping us achieve higher wages and earning a few bucks. you can find out more about the Eureka Fair Wage Act at

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
