Let's raise the wage, Colorado!


Today we join partners throughout the state to announce a new campaign that will improve the lives of Colorado families.

When: Wednesday, May 18, 12 pm
Where: Vine Street Pub, 1700 Vine St, Denver, CO 80206

Our state’s minimum wage is just $8.31 per hour. The cost of living in Colorado is going up drastically, and the minimum wage hasn’t nearly kept up. Thousands of hardworking Coloradans are struggling to make ends meet.

That’s why we’re launching Colorado Families for a Fair Wage. Join us today at the Vine Street Pub in Denver to send a clear message that the time to raise the wage is now!

If you can't be there in person, follow the campaign on Facebook and Twitter to join the conversation.

Colorado Families for a Fair Wage is a coalition of small business owners, community partners, working families and faith organizations coming together to create an economy that works for all Coloradans.

Our campaign is about the people of Colorado. It's about helping single parents raising children, seniors who can't afford to retire and aspiring students who want to pay for an education.

It's about creating a level playing field for small businesses, boosting the state economy and putting more money in the pockets of people who will spend it here in our state.

Help us raise Colorado’s minimum wage to $12 an hour by 2020. It’s sound economic policy and the smart and fair thing to do.
