Scrooge of the Year is an annual award the community (you!) vote on to award to the year's worst Portland-area player. It can be a corporation, a politician, or someone completely different.

We here at Portland Jobs with Justice think it's important that the voting process for this award is true to our American democratic system. That's right - this election is for sale! You may purchase as many votes as you wish to decide the worst boss in town.

News and Updates

I'll Be There...

...standing up for our rights as working people to a decent standard of living.

...supporting the right of all workers to organize and bargain collectively

...fighting for secure family-wage jobs in the face of corporate attacks on working people and our communities

...organizing the unorganized to take aggressive action to secure a better economic future for all of us.

...mobilizing those already organized to join the fight for jobs with justice.

During the next year, I WILL BE THERE at least five times for someone else's fight, as well as my own.

Working People in Oregon Need a Raise

Working people in Oregon need a raise.

For nearly two years, Portland Jobs with Justice (JwJ) and Portland Rising (a working group within JwJ) have supported the bold and visionary goal to raise the statewide minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Greg Margolis, ¡presente! Long Live Greg Margolis!

It is with great sadness that Portland Jobs with Justice announces the passing of our long time compañero, Greg Margolis. We send love and blessings to Greg’s spirit as he moves on, and to his family, friends, and all the people whose lives he has touched.


"People have only as much liberty
as they have the intelligence to want
and the courage to take.”
