Today’s Action: Raise the national minimum wage

A majority of Democrats in both chambers of Congress are cosponsoring the Raise the Wage Act of 2019, which would bring the national minimum wage to $15/hour by 2024, up from its current “starvation wage” of $7.25/hour.

If passed, the new law would raise wages for 40 million Americans, about 30% of the total workforce, including 40% of African Americans and one-third of Latinx workers.

Call or email your Members of Congress and ask them to cosponsor the Raise the Wage Act of 2019. If they have already cosponsored (House/Senate), thank them!

Three out of five minimum wage jobs are held by women, including 6 million mothers. 9 million children with at least one working parent still live below the poverty line. This act would bring that number down drastically.

If you currently work for less than $15/hour and are living the painful truth that the minimum wage hasn’t budged since 2009, we don’t need to convince you of the benefits of this act.

If you work above $15/hour, you’ll still see the impact too. Beyond the massive ethical implications of guaranteeing living wages for all, lifting families out of poverty means fewer of your tax dollars spent on social services, empowering and uplifting poorer populations, and more money sent back into our economy by new spenders.

It’s a win all-around, and a national movement that’s been in the works for years. Let’s see it across the finish line.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand their support of the Raise the Wage Act of 2019. Check their cosponsor status (House/Senate) — if they aren’t on this list, ask them why they don’t want to support working families?

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to demand Jared Kushner’s security clearance be revoked, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
