Raise The Wage

Momentum to raise the minimum wage for low-wage workers, many of them in the food sector, has been growing in recent years. Fast food workers in particular have been at the forefront of the fight, demanding $15/hour as fair compensation for the work they do.

Though the federal minimum wage has been stuck at $7.25/decades for years and the federal minimum wage for tipped workers stuck at $2.13/hour for decades. Fortunately many states and cities have raised minimum wages above the federal minimum, in some cases (notably Seattle and Los Angeles) to the $15/hour rate.

Fair World Project supports raising the minimum wage in all places until it reaches a living wage. There is currently a proposal to raise the federal minimum wage to $12/hour. Although this falls short of a living wage for many workers, it would bring needed relief to millions of workers.
