RAISE UP VT

For a Vermont that works for all of us, not just the wealthy few!

When Vermont’s families thrive, Vermont’s communities thrive. Working people in Vermont should be able to care for and support their families with dignity.

Please join Rights & Democracy in raising our voices to raise up standards for working Vermonters. Together, we can build a Vermont that works for all of us, not just the wealthy few.

RAISE STANDARDS

Raise job standards by making the minimum wage a livable wage. Now is the time to take bold actions and raise the wage higher to bring our families, communities and the state into a stronger economic position.

FAMILY INSURANCE

Establish family and medical leave insurance, so Vermont’s working families can care for their loved ones. We all have a stake in the health and wellbeing of Vermont’s families and communities.

STRENGTHEN LAW

Strengthen existing law to prevent employers denying working people the protections they are entitled to under the law by misclassifying them as “independent contractors.”
