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.

    I remember being paid less as a student even though I worked as hard as my co-workers. Not fair. Not just. Not acceptable.

    If people can’t earn a living wage, then they will have to be supported by the taxpayers. It is better for a person’s self esteem to earn the money from work than from a “handout.” Let’s make it possible for people to have some self-respect!

    How is anyone supposed to be able to make a decent living if the minimum wage is reduced???? I can’t believe how unbelievably mean spirited and hard hearted the 1% is! Are they trying to be the only ones with any money or a chance to live a better LIFE? I’m tired of their selfishness and greed!
