SIGN OUR PETITION

No one who works full-time should live in poverty.

We the undersigned believe that New Hampshire’s minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is a poverty wage and should be gradually raised to $15 an hour by 2024.

New Hampshire is the only state in New England that has not raised the minimum wage in 10 years. We call on New Hampshire’s House of Representatives, Senate, and Governor to Raise the Wage.

If you have a story about your struggles with low wages, feel free to leave them in the comments field when you sign the petition. Or, email Kathy Staub at Rights & Democracy: kathy@radnh.org

    If we’re supposed to be the best place in the United States to live, then why are we so behind in raising the minimum wage? I don’t trust businesses to do it since they seem to care more about profit than people. Let’s show ALL NH citizens that we can provide a living wage to ALL workers regardless of education level.

    An increase in the minimum wage is years overdue. Production per manhour year on year has increased for many years and no financial recognition has been received. Time for a change!
