Raise the State Minimum Wage!

State Representative Jim Nickels, Democrat of Sherwood and a member of AFSCME Local 965, has introduced House Bill 1464 to have the state minimum wage parallel the federal minimum wage. If enacted, the current state minimum wage of $6.25 an hour would increase to $7.25 an hour in July.

Write your state Senators and Representatives and ask them to work for passage of this legislation to help working families.
