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.

    Once again, the Republican-led AZ legislature is OVERREACHING. This time, their hatred for young people and lower income families is apparent. We cannot let them reduce the minimum wage for ANYONE. I propose that the wealthy—and, particularly, the AZ State Legislature—be levied a SURTAX on their income. After all, if they are going to victimize a section of our society, we may play that game, too, right?

    Along with cutting the minimum wage, are you cutting the price of food or gas or utilities or rent?

    This is the most ridiculous recommendation I’ve ever heard. If the AZ legislature passes it, there will be hell to pay from the voters of this state. I’m retired, and have nothing better to do than get out the vote to put those supporting this out of office.
