Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter.

This letter supports actions by the Economic Policy Institute, Jobs with Justice, The Alliance for Retired Americans, Americans for Tax Fairness, Corporate Accountability, People for the American Way and others.

It asks Senators and House members to support The Raise the Wage Act. The bill would increase the minimum wage incrementally and tie future increases to inflation.

Your letter will be sent to your Senators and your Congressperson.

Please support H.R. 582 and S. 150, the Raise the Wage Act (the “Act”). In real terms, the $7.25 hourly federal minimum wage is 25% less than it was fifty years ago. 

The Act would increase the federal minimum wage to $8.55 this year and then incrementally to $15.00 by 2024. After that, it would adjust to keep pace with inflation. 

Estimates are that the Act will affect 29.2% of the wage-earning workforce, or over 40,000,000 Americans. It ensures that tipped workers and others are paid at least the federal minimum wage, and could improve economic security across all demographic groups.

Please support H.R. 582 and S. 150. Give 40 million Americans a much-needed raise. 

Click here to send this letter or to learn more (you can edit the subject or the letter itself in the next step, if you wish).

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
