Raise the minimum wage to 12.00 in Redwood City, CA

Americans are still suffering from one of the worst recessions in history, yet wages have flatlined. The time has come to raise the minimum wage in our community.

Why is this important?

Out of all developed nations, the United States has the most unequal distribution of wealth. Middle class wages have remained stagnant, while the top 1% have seen 95% of the gains.

Raising the minimum wage is one of the best ways to combat income inequality and give Americans a raise.

Reasons for signing

  • The cost of living is ridiculous let alone the pay rate dont get me started on this subject.
  • While the housing rates are going up people aren't able to make ends meet. My husband has a great job at a dental office and we can't even afford a 1 bedroom. That is so crazy!
  • Because I work in redwood city and I can not make alone on minimum wage
