Sign the petition: raise the minimum wage for Oregon families!

by Jessica Vega Pederson

Oregon workers deserve a living wage. When a single parent making minimum wage can’t afford rent, it’s time we do something about it.

I fought to raise the minimum wage in the Oregon legislature last session, because a living wage is going to have positive benefits across our economy. We weren’t able to pass it last year – but we won’t give up.

Sign the petition: tell the legislature to raise Oregon’s minimum wage!

If we stand together, we can lift thousands of families out of poverty. Oregonians deserve a family wage – it’s good for workers and employers.
