I am calling you on Valentines Day to ask you have a heart for workers by voting YES on HB166 to raise the statewide minimum wage to $15/hour. I'm in strong support of the Fight for 15 because the cost of living in Maryland is high and our current minimum wage is not enough to cover basic needs like rent and water bills. Maryland's working families are struggling. This legislation would give over 800,000 Marylanders a raise, and circulate over $2.6 billion back into our economy. The Fight for 15 is a win for both workers and business owners so I urge you to support a "clean $15" by voting YES on HB166<em> </em>with no carve-outs.

We can win the Fight for $15, but we have to take action NOW! When you call, our leaders listen. Outside of a visit to Annapolis, calling our elected officials is the most effective way to make your voice heard. Take five minutes and make a call (or several) to let our elected officials know that they need to stand up for Maryland’s hard-working people and raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 per hour!

Thousands of Maryland workers work full-time but don’t earn enough to make ends meet. A $15 minimum wage means a better Maryland for all of us. Raising the wage would lift thousands of families out of poverty, create new customers and profits for local businesses, and strengthen our neighborhoods.
