I Will Fight to Save the Minimum Wage -- Yo Voy a Luchar para Salvar el Salario Mínimo

Arizona's lowest-wage workers make only $7.65 an hourif_the_minimum_wage.jpg.                                                                       But, even that's too much for some 1%ers.

The Arizona Restaurant Association, led by Steve Chucri, is pledging to keep up the attacks on our minimum wage. Instead of working to create new, quality jobs and strengthen our economy, some in the Arizona state legislature would prefer to widen the wealth and income disparity gap between workers and CEO's by lowering wages for all.

Will you pledge today to fight for the minimum wage?                 


El salario minimo para los trabajadores de Arizona es tan sólo $7.65 por hora; sin embargo, los del 1% piensan que es demasiado.

La Asociación de Restaurantes en Arizona, dirigida por Steve Chucri, se comprometió a continuar con los ataques a nuestro salario mínimo. En lugar de trabajar para crear nuevos y mejores puestos de trabajo y fortalecer nuestra economía, algunos en la legislatura estatal de Arizona prefieren hacer mas grande la brecha de ingresos y riqueza entre los trabajadores regulares y los ejecutivos de las grandes empresas mediante la reducción de los salarios para todos los trabajadore regulares como nosotros.

¿Te comprometes hoy a luchar con nosotros a favor del salario mínimo?

I pledge to defend the minimum wage! Arizona's hard-working families will not have their paychecks raided by CEO's and their 1%er pals. I will actively fight any legislative attempts to lower this wage, which will hurt our state's poorest workers and our shared economy.

Me comprometo a defender el salario mínimo! Las familias trabajadoras de Arizona que sobreviven del salario minimo no tendran sus cheques de pago robados por los CEOs y sus compañeros de 1%. De manera activa me comprometo a luchar contra cualquier intento por los legisladores para bajar el salario minimo, porque esto le harán daño a los trabajadores más pobres de nuestro estado y destrozara nuestra economía.

    Minimum wage must be a livable wage. I will never stop fighting for the rights of the working poor in Arizona. We should treat people who work full-time with respect. They should be able to live their lives with dignity.

    people can’t live on the minimum wage ANYWAY if you lower it, people will be homeless and starving. There are many people who are homeless and can’t find housing on minimum wage earnings. Don’t even think you can lower the wage any lower. Housing costs are way above the reach of most minimum wage earners. We need more low income housing,and we should think about raising the minimum wage to match the sky cost of housing. Too many people are homeless.
