Raise Up Vermont

Raise_Up_Collage1.jpg

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

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

2. Establish family and medical leave insurance, so Vermont's working families can care for their loved ones.

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

-- -- --

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.

    Two adults working 40+hours a week with 5 kids and still can’t make get ahead. We try to do all the right things. Pay bills, watch the credit score like a hawk, coupon and shop sales. But we still can’t get ahead to put any money into savings, let alone buy a house.

    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.
