Springfield Raising the Wage Forum

Join your neighbors in Springfield to speak with Vermont legislators, activists and researchers about the campaign to raise the wage to $15 an hour in our state.

PanelistsRaise_the_Wage_Logo.png Include:

Representative Alice Emmons - Windsor 3-2
Representative Matthew Trieber - Windham 3
Paul Cillo - President of Public Assets Institute
Isaac Grimm - Rights & Democracy & Vermont Raise the Wage Coalition

A $15 wage in VT would deliver broad benefits for 1 in 3 working Vermonters, and make a critical step to reverse decades of rising pay inequality. 

California, New York, Washington, D.C. and cities from Minneapolis to Seattle to Flagstaff, Arizona have all approved $15 wages in recent years, and in DC, over 160 members of Congress and 30 Senators, including Pat Leahy and Peter Welch, have joined Bernie Sanders to co-sponsor legislation to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 by 2024.

Join in the discussion and join in the movement to Raise Up Vermont!  

Together, we can build a more just and equitable economy that does not leave us and our neighbors behind.
