We are preparing our mobilization efforts for all those impacted by low wages and all those who believe Idaho must address this issue now to put pressure on the Idaho Legislature to take up house bill 400 raising Idaho’s minimum wage for 30,000 Idahoans.
These policies create circumstances for our families, our friends, and our communities that keep struggling.Then they strip our abilityto organize local solutions by banning local ordinances and ballot initiatives. They tell us that only state lawmakers should determine the minimum wage, but then refuse to hear from us.Our elected officials are too comfortable dismissing the needs and concerns of the residents of Idaho- we need to call them out and show them that WE ARE HERE, WE CARE and WE ARE WATCHING!
State lawmakers have ensured that only they can address minimum wage, by passing the preeemption bill that denies municipalities from coming up with their own solutions, meanwhile they have refuse to hear from us for three years – so, now we need to demand that they take up H400 and do it this session!
