Everyone should be paid decently and have basic workplace protections so that they can sustain themselves financially, be healthy, and be able to take care of their family.
We advocate for a fair minimum wage that is a living wage and for employment laws and practices that protect workers from discrimination and ensure equity, and dignity for every working person–particularly those working in the lowest paying, most dangerous, and least protected jobs in America.
The majority of minimum wage earners and tipped workers are adults providing for their families.
Let’s commit to making the gender wage gap history.
