From NH Alliance for Action:
If you support raising the minimum wage, join the Raise the Wage NH Coalition to rally outside the State House this Thursday, May 8 at 9:00 AM before the Senate votes on this critical legislation. Activists will meet at our office, located at 4 Park Street (to the right of the State House) where we will have pre-made signs or supplies so you can make your own.
It’s time to raise New Hampshire’s minimum wage. Are you in?
New Hampshire’s minimum wage has not kept up with the cost of living for more than 30 years, and is currently stalled at $7.25 an hour – or the equivalent of only $1,276 a month for a full-time worker. It’s time for New Hampshire to address the plight of 75,000 Granite State workers and raise the minimum wage.
Join us in calling on state legislators to pass a minimum wage increase.
Raising the minimum wage would help lift Granite State workers out of poverty, stimulate the economy, and help families across the state.
This isn’t a partisan issue. Recent polling finds that three-quarters of Americans – including majorities of Republicans, Independents, and Democrats – support increasing the minimum wage. Granite State Progress and a broad coalition of workers, organizational allies, faith leaders, and small businesses are calling on state legislators to raise the minimum wage to $8.25 in 2015 and $9 in 2016 – and to index it to the cost of living going forward.
But we need your help to get there. Let us know you’re behind us by signing our petition today calling on New Hampshire state legislators to raise the minimum wage.
