Tell lawmakers to raise the wage: raisingwagesnc.org/take-action/
In recognition of International Women’s Day on Wednesday, North Carolina lawmakers joined Raising Wages NC — a growing coalition of workers groups, advocates, businesses, and faith leaders — to announce the launch of a new campaign and the introduction of legislation to raise the state’s minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15 an hour by 2022.
At the event, legislators, workers, business owners, and faith leaders called attention to the impact of low wages on women across our state. Poverty wages hurt working women, working families, and our economy.
