Your voices made a difference. Thanks to your advocacy and the historic signature gathering effort last fall, Massachusetts is set to have the highest minimum wage in the country – an increase that will help low-wage workers across the Commonwealth who are struggling to make ends meet. Regrettably, the legislation from the House did not include a sufficient raise for tipped workers and it would not tie future increases in the minimum wage to the cost of living. That's why we're gearing up for the next round of signature gathering to ensure that these issues can be put in front of voters in November.
We have a lot of work ahead of us, but take a moment to look at what we have accomplished so far this year in the fight for a higher wage for all Massachusetts workers! Then, sign up to join us for our next steps!
