Raise Up Vermont - Rights and Democracy

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.

    We need to face the fact that people are having a very hard time continuing to be Vermonters. Unless we make our state more inviting and comfortable to live in we are going to continue to see our population diminish. It’s a given that people need to be paid what they are worth and companies still need to be able to afford to stay in business. Now is the time to figure out how to make this all work.

    I’ve lost friends recently thru the heath care system that excludes poor people by design and I"m pissed now. Single-payer Medicare-for-All is the obvious answer. 15$ an hour will bring justice for working people and more balance to our New Gilded Age society.
