Tell Congress to Pass the Raise the Wage Act

Why is this important?

Essential workers voted and essential workers decided. We sent lawmakers to Washington who promised to stand with us to deliver racial and economic justice.

Across the country workers like me are still struggling on poverty wages, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic drags on. We have kids, rent, bills to pay. The $7.25/hr minimum wage just doesn’t cut it for anyone, anywhere.

Enough is enough. No one should work 40 hours a week and still have to choose between rent and groceries. Congress will only act if we do.

Add your name to tell Congress that we need a $15/hr federal minimum wage NOW.


Reasons for signing

  • Current minimal wage is criminal
  • We need$15 now with annual incremental cost of living increases.
  • A living wage is common sense to those that have some.
