Who We Are

A broad (and growing!) coalition of community, faith, labor, non-profit and service-based organizations working together to:
  • Raise the minimum wage for small business to $8.50 and large business to $9.50 by 2015 for employers
  • Change the definition of large/small business from $625,000 to $500,000 per year
  • Ensure the minimum wage keeps it’s value by indexing it to inflation
  • Conform state law to reflect the federal 40 hour work week and twelve weeks of parental leave upon the birth or adoption of a child
  • Protect tipped workers from having their wages cut by not allowing tip penalty language to be added
