Two in three minimum wage workers are women, and many women work in low-wage jobs that pay just a few dollars (or cents) more. As a result, millions of women and families nationwide are struggling to make ends meet.
Now there’s a bill before Congress that could have a huge impact for these working families. The Raise the Wage Act would increase the federal minimum wage to $12 an hour and give nearly 20 million working women, including more than 8.6 million women of color, a raise.
Urge your Members of Congress to co-sponsor the Raise the Wage Act.
