Across the country, people are fighting back against rising income inequality, and we have an opportunity to bring the fight here to Washington. Raise Up Washington, a coalition of concerned Washingtonians and labor, faith, and community groups including our Union, is launching a statewide ballot initiative to support working people. Initiative 1433 would raise Washington State’s minimum wage from $9.47 to $13.50 and allow workers to earn paid sick and safe leave, phased in over four years.
Together, we can ensure that no one who works full-time has to raise a family in poverty, but it’s going to take all of us working together to make it happen.
Sign up here to volunteer and Dustin Lambro, Political Coordinator at Local 117 will follow up with you. You can also call him directly at 206-441-4860 x1262.
