Women who earn minimum wage are struggling to make ends meet. The current minimum wage at $7.25 an hour can’t support our families.
It's time to raise it to a wage that can.
Sign a petition today asking your elected officials to support hard working men and women by increasing the minimum wage!
What would raising the federal minimum wage do?
- Rebuild our economy. For every $1 added to the minimum wage, low-wage worker households spend an additional $2,800 the following year.
- Ensure a better future for our children. 21.5 million children have a parent who would benefit from a minimum wage increase.
- Increase jobs. Increasing the minimum wage would boost consumer spending, which drives 70% of our economy.
