Vote on Tuesday November 4

The Social Justice Committee asks you to vote for Initiative 425 which will amend the Nebraska statute establishing a minimum wage rate for employees to increase the current state minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $8.00 per hour on 1/1/2015, and to $9.00 per hour on January 1, 2016.

From the National Employment Law Project, “Raising Nebraska’s minimum wage would put much-needed money in the pockets of the state’s lowest-paid workers, stimulating consumer spending and fueling economic growth in the state. The data show that this proposal would improve the well-being of working families in the state while injecting over $73 million dollars into the state’s economy.”
