Please join the NH Citizens Alliance on Tuesday, February 11 at 8:30am for a Lobby Day!

New Hampshire workers cannot make ends meet on today’s minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.
Raising New Hampshire’s minimum wage would benefit thousands of workers and families across the state.HB 1403 would produce a modest, gradual, and sustained increase in New Hampshire’s minimum wage. Join us for a Lobby day on the Minimum Wage, Press Conference and Testify at the Labor Committee. 


From NH Citizens Alliance:

Today, women in NH and across the country on average are still paid only 77 cents for every dollar paid to men.

We can change that. Here are TWO opportunities for YOU to create real change for women and families.

IMMEDIATE STATE ACTION!:

Celebrate the Anniversary of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and TELL the NH HOUSE Labor Committee to SUPPORT Pay Check Fairness in NH!

House Bill 1188 - Pay Check Fairness - was heard in the House Labor Committee last week.

WE NEED YOU to contact members on the House Labor Committee and tell them to vote OUGHT TO PASS on HB 1188 - Pay Check Fairness. Ensuring women are earning the same as their male counterparts is good policy for NH.

Pay Check Fairness protects NH families, lessens the burden on state funded programs and will help to move our economy forward.
The gender wage gap is real - and it hurts women, it hurts families, and it hurts the middle class. But women can't negotiate for fair pay unless they can find out if they are paid less for performing the same work as male co-workers.

Senate Bill 207 would take an important step toward closing the pay gap in New Hampshire. SB207 clearly defines the conditions in which employers may legitimately pay different wages to men and women who perform equal work, stops employers from requiring pay secrecy as a condition of employment, and prohibits employers from retaliating against employees who disclose wage and salary information to their co-workers.

SB207 had a public hearing before the Senate Commerce Committee. Please contact the Senate Commerce Committee.


Take action TODAY! Contact the NH HOUSE Labor Committee and the Senate Commerce Committee.



Tell them pay check fairness is good for NH!
