Stand with Chuck to Raise the Minimum Wage
Sign now to stand with Chuck and support Initiative 425 to increase Nebraska's minimum wage this fall >>
An employee who works 40 hours a week for 52 weeks for $7.25 per hour only earns $15,080 per year. That's below the federal poverty line for families of two or more.
The 32,000 workers in our state who earn minimum wage deserve better. Nebraskans who work hard every day deserve to earn a living wage. Raising the minimum wage will reduce poverty, reduce employment turnover, and increase consumer spending -- that's good for workers, employers, and our economy.
I strongly support this initiative, and hope we can work together to raise the wage in Nebraska.
