URGENT: Tell West Virginia State Senators to Raise the Minimum Wage!The 2014 legislative session is set to end on March 8. On the line is a long-overdue increase in the state minimum wage, or in practical terms: the prospect for a better life for West Virginia's working families. Our state senators MUST stand with working people and raise the minimum wage in West Virginia to $8.25 per hour and index it to inflation and increase the tipped minimum wage. ALL workers deserve a living wage and no one who works full time should toil in poverty. Lobbyists from fast-food corporations like McDonald's and state hospitality industry groups are working hard to convince lawmakers that they cannot afford a minimum wage increase and that a raise would be bad for families and the economy. We know—and studies show— that these "bad for the economy" assertions are just not true. It's the workers who cannot afford NOT to get a raise.18 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Michael Livingston
Tell Corizon Healthcare to Reinstate Sister Barbara Finch! No union-busting!Sr. Barbara Finch is a five-year veteran nurse at the Allegheny County Jail infirmary. She was fired last week for leading efforts to organize her coworkers to form a union. Workers at the jail are working to improve conditions to better provide patient care and safety. They want a voice in their workplace so that they can carry on the mission of providing healthcare with dignity. All workers deserve the right to stick together for a united voice, better working conditions and safer workspaces. Sr. Barbara should not be fired for leading efforts for a more fair workplace!21 of 100 SignaturesCreated by Michael Livingston
