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.

    You’re going to start a bloody revolution with this crap, and good for you. Any legislator who signs bills to cut workers’ pay deserves the guillotine!

    Minimum wage is to minimum to live on. The worker still has to pay the high prices caused by rude business practices. To cut wages would not help any body. Do not cut wages.

    Seriously? Cutting the minimum wage more, when it is not even remotely a living wage? What planet do you lawmakers exist on?

    You ignore the will of the people of AZ at your own political peril. The people have spoken on this! How about listening for a change.

    If we don’t make this literally minimal gesture toward keeping some kind of semi-solid floor beneath those of us with the least (present) earning power, we’re putting a boot at the throats of our youth, among others, and we’re all going to go down. Please do the right thing and withdraw this ill-conceived bill.
