Help deliver minimum wage storybooks on Capitol Hill July 24th!
This Thursday marks the 5-year anniversary since the last time the federal minimum wage was raised. The current federal minimum wage is stuck at $7.25 per hour. MomsRising has a petition signed by more than 13,000 parents from around the country calling on Congress to raise the minimum wage to $10.10. We are going to deliver that petition to key members of Congress along with a storybook filled with first hand experiences from moms working the minimum wage.
