Raise Up Vermont

Raise_Up_Collage1.jpg

We support raising basic standards for workers in Vermont, and call on lawmakers to:

1. Raise job standards by making the minimum wage a livable wage.

2. Establish family and medical leave insurance for all Vermont working families.

3. Strengthen existing law to prevent employers from misclassifying their employees as “independent contractors” and denying the protections they are entitled to under the law.

----

Right now millions of people in Vermont and across the country are struggling with poverty wages, lack of paid family and medical leave to care for their families, experience wage theft or our misclassified as independent contractors, or become ill or injured at work because of dangerous working conditions.

Rights & Democracy believes that everyone has the right to live and raise their families in dignity. In the coming years, we believe Vermont can increasingly become a national leader for raising workplace standards.

Please join us in helping continue to raise the standards for working people and supporting this campaign!

    I worked for an employer for 15 years. I was injured and then immediately laid off upon my return to work. I had to take a cut in pay of over 5+ dollars an hour at my next job. I am still in pain from the accident but, stay at my job because I have managed to get raises and would need to take yet another big cut in, starting somewhere else.
