Save Arizona's Minimum Wage! -- Salvar al Salario Minimo en Arizona!

At the end of February, the Commerce Committee of the Arizona House of Representatives approved a bill that would steal money from the paychecks of Arizona's lowest paid employees. The bill cuts the minimum wage by $3 for teenagers and $2 for tipped employees. greed.jpgTell the bill's sponsor, Rep. Steve Court, to stop giving breaks to the 1% at the expense of Arizona's working families!

****

Al fin del mes de febrero, el Comité de Comercio de la Cámara de Representantes de Arizona aprobó un proyecto de ley que robaría dinero de sus cheques de pago de los empleados de los mas bajos salarios. Este proyecto de ley reduce el salario mínimo en $3.00 para los adolescentes y en $2.00 para los empleados que reciben propinas. Digale al patrocinador de este proyecto de ley, Representante Steve Court, que deje de beneficiar al 1% a gran costo de las familias trabajadoras de Arizona.

 

Rep. Court,

We call on you to stop doing the bidding of Arizona's 1% by cutting the minimum wage by $3 for teenagers and $2 tipped employees. This is a special interest payoff at the expense of our state's working families. We demand you pull the bill or let it die.

    This is absurd. The minimum wage is not a living wage as it is.

    If only everyone knew what was really going on. Unfortunately too many people believe all the propaganda from the right! Or else they don’t understand the difference between $5 today and $5 in 1960! I use to forgive them, but not any more.

    Leave the minimum wage alone! Stop trying to finance the State on the backs of the less fortunate.

    How small-minded can you get? Many “tipped” employees are women, working long hours and already struggling to support themselves and their families. Steve Court and the Arizona house should try to live on what he proposes they get paid. Such stinginess in the twenty-first century is an outrage.
