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

    It’s better for America if people get paid well enough for their work that they don’t need food stamps and other subsidies

    A living wage boosts families’ economic security and the economy. Business owners don’t spend locally at rates like workers do. The more spending power you give workers, the better for NH.

    It is always the poorer, disadvantaged people in the US who are suffering in an administration that favors, caters to the one percent. Escaping poverty is the goal of people living in poverty, while those in power are working overtime to KEEP people in poverty. Amazon raising minimum wage to $15 an hour is incentive for the rest of Smerica to be humane, helpful, committed to helping people in low wage jobs. A raise in wages is a start for better health, welfare, education. Just Do It.

    Even $15.00 is not enough.

    The Republicans have shown us that they are living in the

    past. Their minimum wage is an indicator of just how far in the past they are. They will not be our choice in the future.
