In his State of the Union, President Obama called on Congress to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 – an idea popular among many Republican, Independent, and Democratic voters. Shenna Bellows will deliver this petition to Rep. Susan Collins demanding she give 96,000 Maine residents a raise by supporting a minimum-wage increase. Can you sign this petition?
PETITION TO SENATOR COLLINS:
“With the growing gap between the rich and the rest of us, Americans deserve a raise. I support raising the minimum wage to at least $10.10 per hour – and call on Senator Collins to do the same. Susan Collins needs to say whether she stands with hard-working parents who want to put food on the table or with corporate CEO’s who want to pay themselves millions more in bonuses.”
We’ll invite the media to our petition delivery. The more signatures we have, the more likely the media will cover our fight on this issue – so please tell others too.
