Last year House Republicans unanimously voted to block an increase in the minimum wage. This year they’re blocking a vote from even being scheduled, despite overwhelming public support and the millions of families it would lift out of poverty. Meanwhile they continue to support tax cuts for the super rich and corporations that ship jobs overseas.
Join us on April 1 as we rally against poverty wages and demand our Representative supports an increase in the minimum wage.

Message from your host, JIm M.: On April 1st MoveOn.org will deliver a petition to Representative Michael Grimm's office at 265 New Dorp Lane. The petition calls on Mr. Grimm to support a raise of the country's minimum wage. Rep. Grimm, is on the record as opposing this common-sense policy despite eighty percent of voters supporting an increase. He is standing in the way of millions of hard-working Americans getting the raise they deserve and is opposing the people he has sworn to serve.
We will challenge Rep. Grimm to stand with his constituents on this issue. We invite anyone who works at minimum wage or people who have family members, or know friends or neighbors who do to join us in support of this issue. Join us in showing a broken Washington that this is about Americans caring for Americans and not campaign contributors.
