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

    I am running for State Rep and one important issue I am campaigning on is raising the minimum wage to a living wage.

    In my Inaugural I laid down the simple proposition that nobody is going to starve in this country. It seems to me to be equally plain that no business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country. By “business” I mean the whole of commerce as well as the whole of industry; by workers I mean all workers, the white collar class as well as the men in overalls; and by living wages I mean more than a bare subsistence level-I mean the wages of decent living.

    I have been working full time for many years. This year I have had to work two jobs to just make ends meet, and that doesn’t even pay all my bills.

    NH has long needed to increase the minimum wage and it is an insult to the residents working here to not even have our own minimum wage and default to the federal wage of $7.25 per hour. We need a livable wage!
