Raise Up Rally

Join us on Thursday, June 26 (NEW DATE -- June 30!) at 11 for a rally on the State House steps and then to march around the corner to turn in the petition signatures to the Secretary of State's office to qualify them for the ballot.

Come celebrate with us!

Earned sick time is going on the ballot this fall  -- let's make sure to get all of those petitions in!

And a raise in the minimum wage still needs to be signed by the governor -- let's put the pressure on!

 A raise in the minimum wage from $8 to $11 will: 

  • Benefit 1 in 5 workers in MA, 57% of whom are women, and 85% of whom are are older than 20 (and most of the younger workers are either using part of the wages to support their lower wage earning family and/or saving for college)
  • Benefit 140,000 parents of 236,000 children 
  • Put $1.1 billion when fully phased in which will help these low wage earners AND help our state economy retain and create jobs since most of these wage increases will be spent right back in our economy 

(rain site is the Church of the New Jerusalem/Church on the Hill on the side of the State House at 140 Bowdoin Street).
