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 cannot be allowed to happen. Not when the 1% don’t even pay the taxes they should be paying. Let them start contributing some of their money. Don’t take it from those who cannot even get by as it is.

    If you go along with the 1% and pass some of this legislation you are going to feel the wrath of the voters. Especially, when it comes to asking for a salary increase.

    It’s a struggle to make a living on minimum wage where it is today. Don’t legislate the impossible: trying to make it on even less.

    The last thing we need is a cut to the minimum wage. How outrageous that the people with money want to take more of the money from the people who have less and earn the money for the rich with their efforts.

    Let’s take $3,000 off your salary and see if it makes a difference to you. That would be about fair.
    Stop concentrating on the working class and start taking a look at those at the top who don’t pay their fair share. They get richer and richer off the working class. Three dollars in their pockets hurts all of us.
