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 raised to $15 an hour as soon as possible.
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, please share it here or in the comments field when you sign the petition. Or, email Isaac Grimm & Kathy Staub -- email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
