(4/5) Minimum Wage Public Hearing - Rights & Democracy VT

Minimum Wage Public Hearing!

Screen_Shot_2018-03-23_at_2.56.17_PM.pngOn April 5th (5-7pm), in Room 11 of the Statehouse, the House General Committee is holding a public hearing on whether to #RaiseTheWage to $15 an hour in Vermont 

This is your chance to make sure these representatives are hearing the voices and stories of working people who know how critical it is that we win livable wages now!

More than 25,000 working Vermonters currently live on the minimum wage today, and over 70,000 would benefit from a $15 an hour minimum wage. 

This is not just a matter of economic injustice facing thousands in our state - poverty wages disproportionately harm women and people of color in Vermont. Almost half - 45% - of women and almost 60% of African Americans in VT are earning under $15. 

We have an huge opportunity to raise the minimum wage to a livable wage this legislative session, but this will only happen if legislators are hearing loud and clear from #RaiseTheWage supporters like you!
