This 22-year-old home health care worker is taking the fight for $15 directly to the 2016 presidential candidates

Tatiana Anderson spends most of her time doing three things: going to college, taking care of the elderly as a home health care worker, and fighting for a living wage. As a member of the Fight for $15 movement, Anderson, 22, is pushing to make sure people like her don’t have to survive on poverty wages, and she’s fighting back against politicians who oppose raising the minimum wage and collective bargaining rights. Watch her explain why she thinks that when low-wage workers come together, their voices will be heard.

Fusion is profiling 30 women, all 30 or younger, who will change the presidential election—fighting for causes as diverse as their backgrounds, each wielding power in a unique way. You can check out their stories here and talk about them with the hashtag #the30.
