Need a pay raise?

 

I found an article about how the state of California has the highest minimum wage in America. Sahadi et. al.(2016) wrote, “The measure will raise the state’s minimum wage to $10.50 in January and to $11 in January 2018. It will then increase by an additional $1 per hour every year until it reaches $15 in 2022. If, however, the state goes through an economic downturn or budget crisis, the governor may choose to slow the implementation.”It would be great if other states would follow suit, and raise the minimum wage. Your state government has the ability to raise minimum wage too. They are not going to do it on their own. The citizens of the state have to pool together and demand a minimum wage hike. One person can make a difference by organizing a community organization. It is simply. All you have to do is to start having meetings and start researching. You need to research how to get a bill passed through congress. You can use social media to get the word out and to reach out to other organizations. It will take a lot of hard work, but will be well worth the trouble. Remember, it takes a village, so start talking to others to see how you can get your local government to raise the minimum wage.
