FOCUS: $15 Minimum Wage | Paid Family and Medical Leave
GOAL: Let legislators hear your support for these important bills
DEADLINE: TODAY between 11AM and 3PM
From Raise Up Massachusetts:
As I’m sure you’ve heard by now – last week was a big week for Raise Up Massachusetts. We had the Constitutional Convention vote on the Fair Share Amendment and a hearing on Paid Family and Medical Leave, on back-to-back days!
After the Fair Share Amendment vote on Wednesday, the Amendment will officially be on the ballot in 2018! The Amendment was overwhelmingly approved, with 134 legislators voting in favor. This is huge news for our coalition, and it’s more important than ever that we capitalize on this momentum.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Riding the wave of these recent wins, the folks at Raise Up Massachusetts are asking people to make calls today in support of their campaigns (for a $15 Minimum Wage, the Fair Share Amendment, and Paid Family and Medical Leave).
