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 really intend to attract young families to NH, as our leaders say we should, we have to make it possible for them to live a decent life without the need for public assistance or other form of aid. And parents working here now should not have to work multiple jobs just to pay the rent. It’s time to step it up.

    It is way past time to enact legislation to raise the minimum wage to at least $15, if not more. In the richest country in the world, it is unconscionable not to raise it.
