Tell Chris Sununu to Give Granite Staters a Raise

Governor Chris Sununu will soon decide whether or not to establish a minimum wage in New Hampshire and raise wages for many of New Hampshire's hardest workers. The New Hampshire House and Senate have both approved legislation that would establish a minimum wage in the state and gradually raise the minimum wage for Granite Staters above the outdated and inadequate $7.25 an hour. Raising the minimum wage is a commonsense policy that will help Granite Staters. In fact, more than 100,000 workers in New Hampshire would directly benefit from a $12 minimum wage. And the $7.25 wage hasn't seen an increase in more than 10 years, even as the cost of living has increased 18 percent. Chris Sununu has already made clear that he opposes giving Granite State families a raise, has said flat out that New Hampshire shouldn't have a minimum wage at all, and has threatened to veto this important piece of legislation that will fuel New Hampshire’s workforce and economy. But while Chris Sununu won't give Granite Staters a mere $4.75 per hour raise, he's already given himself a massive pay raise and plans on getting another for himself this year - all at taxpayers’ expense. How big of a raise does Chris Sununu think he deserves? He’s already gave himself a whopping $22,000.00 raise, and now he wants $13,000.00 more on top of it. That's more than 7 times the pay raise he's denying the hardest working Granite Staters - and he’s making all of us pay for his. Chris Sununu has proven time and time again that he's abusing his position for his own profit at Granite Staters' expense. That's why I'm calling on Chris Sununu to give back his raise, and give Granite Staters one instead.
