Your action delays vote on Tennessee living wage repeal
On Feb. 29th, the members of the House State & Local Government subcommittee that you've been petitioning delayed a vote on the living wage repeal until March 7th. This could be a sign that they don't currently have enough votes to get the bill passed.
Not only have legislators been hearing from many of you; there's also been a flurry of media coverage. The Commercial Appeal newspaper covered a press conference by local elected officials on Feb. 27th, and FOX 13 devoted a 5 minute segment to the anti-living wage bill, featuring Rebekah Gienapp, the director of Workers Interfaith Network (you can watch the video on WIN's blog.)
We still need to keep up the pressure on legislators. Can you invite your friends to sign the petition?
