Honor workers with a Labour Day Sabbath

From North Carolina Council of Churches

The NC Council of Churches is partnering with Raise the Wage NC to encourage faith communities to hold a Labor Sabbath this Labor Day weekend, August 31-September 2. Faith leaders can adapt their holy day services in ways that reflect the importance of workers, the value of labor unions, and the need to raise the North Carolina minimum wage.

Through Labor Sabbath, congregations have the opportunity to talk about faith, work, and justice. Across the state this year, we are focused on honoring labor and supporting the need for education to raise the minimum wage in NC.

Participation can happen at various levels, and Raise the Wage NC has put together a variety of resources, listed below, to help. In addition, the Council offers lectionary resources on living wage and on supporting workers.

If your faith community decides to participate, please click here to let us know by completing a short commitment form. For more information on how to get involved, call 828-505-7466 or email [email protected]
