Greetings _________,

 

My name is __________ and I am a Maryland Resident. I’m contacting you to respectfully urge you to vote in favor of legislation to raise Maryland’s minimum wage to $15/hour by the year 2023.

A $15 minimum wage is important to me because: (select a few talking points and/or share a personal story)

  • – The cost of living in Maryland is so high that workers earning under $15 struggle to pay for food, water bills, rent, and transportation.
  • – Raising the minimum wage to $15/hour will help reduce the gender and racial pay gaps.
  • – A $15/hour minimum wage will boost Maryland’s economy by $2.6 billion annually.
  • – Wages under $15/hour are not enough to sustain a family. Raising the minimum wage would benefit 254,000 children.
  • – Business owners can have more customers and lower turnover, which will help businesses thrive.

Please help to uplift Maryland’s working families and build our economy from the ground up by supporting a $15/hour minimum wage. Thank you.

Sincerely,

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.
