Two in three minimum wage workers are women, and many women work in low-wage jobs that pay just a few dollars (or cents) more. As a result, millions of women and families nationwide are struggling to make ends meet.
Now there's a bill before Congress that could have a huge impact for these working families. The Raise the Wage Act would increase the federal minimum wage to $12 an hour and give nearly 20 million working women, including more than 8.6 million women of color, a raise.
Urge your Members of Congress to co-sponsor the Raise the Wage Act.
Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent, I'm writing to ask you to support the Raise the Wage Act. This bill is an important step toward fair pay for women and greater economic security for their families.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
