BREAKING: $15/hr minimum wage announced in Congress
For almost a decade, workers have spoken out, marched, and gone on STRIKE for a $15/hr minimum wage — the minimum we need to live a life of dignity. In November, workers put champions for $15 in the White House, and in January solidified their control of Congress.
Now, a bill to raise the minimum wage to $15 has been announced in Congress. We’ve never been closer.
Here’s what you can do RIGHT NOW to help win $15/hr:
- SIGN. Tell your lawmakers what $15 means to you. Send a quick message to your lawmakers to show them that voters like you want every worker to have a paycheck that allows them to live with dignity.
- SHARE. Show your support for $15 by spreading the news on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. We’ve won raises, protections, and elections by showing up for each other – every voice matters.
- CALL. Tell your Senators to support $15 NOW. Dial 1-888-639-5155 and ask your Senators to support the Raise the Wage Act of 2021. Making a call is the best way to make sure they know you care about raising the wage – offices tally up calls and report this out to members of Congress!
We can’t let up. Now, it’s up to us to make sure we WIN. For workers, for our families, and for justice.
Let’s claim our power. It’s time for $15 and a union.
