Over 85,000 workers making under $15 an hour in Vermont. Poverty and inequality are hurting too many Vermonters today, disproportionately women and people of color, and now is the time to show up and tell our elected officials to take bold action and #RaisetheWage!
Join the Raise The Wage coalition to deliver hundreds of postcards to legislators supporting a minimum wage increase. And stay tuned for more updates!
“Powerful corporations use their influence to hold down wages and benefits so working people can’t meet the basics to care for and support their families. By raising the minimum wage so that families can meet the basics, their spending will boost our local economies, create jobs and help our communities thrive.” (Brittany Nevins, chairwoman of Rights & Democracy)
