Martin Luther King Jr. and the Living Wage

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2010

There are many who believe that The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King was killed because he advocated for peace.

There are others who believe that it was not until he became involved in the sanitation workers’ strike in Memphis, Tennessee, that he was shot.

It was from the jail cell in Birmingham, Alabama, that he wrote, “There is nothing but short sightedness to prevent a living wage for every American family.”
