6 cents or $1.53 — that's quite a choice

The state just ran the annual inflation calculation on the minimum wage, and the results are in: 

On January 1st, the state's minimum wage will rise 6 whole cents from $9.47 to $9.53/hour.

That's not enough to support yourself anywhere in the state.

But if voters pass Initiative 1433, workers in our state will see a minimum wage of $11.00/hour on January 1, 2017, on the way to $13.50 over four years.

That's an increase of $1.53/hour — or an additional $1.47 for tens of thousands of workers just three months from now.

So do something about it! 

1) Pledge to vote yes on I-1433

2) Share your story about why you support raising wages.

Nope, that's not enough to pay the rent.
