Dr. Martin L. King Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968 in Memphis, TN. He was in Memphis to help fight for the rights of sanitation workers. Last evening, April 3, 2014, Greater Birmingham Ministries held a community forum, “Working for Wages, No Wages for Work?” at St. Paul UMC in Birmingham.

Presenter at the event was Kim Bobo, author of “Wage Theft in America” the Executive Director of Interfaith Worker Justice. She gave practical suggestions for people of faith to take collective action and for individuals to take personal steps. An example of a personal step is to "tip in cash” rather than credit card.
