Occupy the State House to Protect Maine’s Minimum Wage Increase (Augusta)

April 5, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

We fought to get the minimum wage on the ballot. We fought to pass it in November. Now we have to fight to protect it in the legislature. Republicans have introduced 9 bills attempting to roll back every part of the minimum wage law and they’ll all be heard on April 5th.

It’s time to rally for the will of the voters and the rights of Maine workers. If you can show up at 8:30am that’s great, but any time you can spend at the State House will make a difference.
