Petition to South Dakota Senate Candidates
“With the growing gap between the rich and the rest of us, Americans deserve a raise. I support raising the minimum wage – and call on all South Dakota candidates for the United States Senate to do the same and request whether (s)he stands with hard-working parents who want to put food on the table or with corporate CEO’s who want to pay themselves millions more in bonuses.”
Why is this important?
Please sign the petition to Annette Bosworth, Stace Nelson, Larry Pressler, Jason Ravnsborg, Larry Rhoden and Mike Rounds.
In his State of the Union, President Obama called on Congress to raise the minimum wage – an idea popular among many Republican, Independent, and Democratic voters.
Rick Weiland will deliver this petition to his announced opponents in the South Dakota Senate race, including Annette Bosworth, Stace Nelson, Larry Pressler, Jason Ravnsborg, Larry Rhoden and Mike Rounds requesting their support for giving 62,000 South Dakota residents a raise by supporting a minimum-wage increase.
