Cambridge Policy Order Resolution

On Monday, January 27, the Cambridge City Council will consider a policy order resolution in support of the Raise Up Massachusetts campaign for an $11 per hour minimum wage and earned sick time.

Newly-elected Cambridge City Councillor Dennis Carlone introduced the measure as his first policy order, calling upon the Massachusetts Legislature “to adopt an increase in the minimum wage to $11 per hour, without any corresponding cuts to unemployment insurance.” The resolution is being co-sponsored by Cambridge City Councillor Leland Cheung.

For this resolution to have an impact, it would be great if coalition supporters would sign up to speak during the City Council’s public comment on Monday at 5:30 p.m.

People may sign up for public comment by calling the City Council Office at (617) 349-4280 on Monday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., or by showing up at City Hall between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Ask to speak about the “Minimum Wage Resolution.”

Public comment will begin at 5:30 pm and typically lasts for about an hour, but there’s no need for people to stay the entire time. Contact Mike Connolly, aide to Councillor Carlone, at (617) 349-4279 with any questions or concerns.
