Connecticut State Senate: Raise the Minimum Wage!

President Obama is right. Raise the minimum wage and tie it to inflation in Connecticut.

Why is this important?

In the State of the Union, President Obama called on Congress to raise the minimum wage and to tie it to inflation.

This is a huge step -- minimum wage workers have been falling behind for decades. Raising the minimum wage and tying it to inflation will ensure we don't leave them behind in the future.

Here in Connecticut, we know we can't wait for John Boehner and Mitch McConnell to agree. We need the State Senate to take the first step.

It's time to raise the minimum wage. Sign our petition to tell the State Senate to raise the minimum wage and tie it to inflation!


Reasons for signing

  • This is one good step in decreasing inequality which is bad for all of us.
  • I ABSOLUTELY think MoveOn should support this bill.
  • My two young adult sons can not possibly afford an appartment on their own making minimum wage.
