Wisconsin state legislature, Governor Scott Walker: Join 10 other states and raise the minimum wage to $9.19/hour in Wisconsin

    1. Petition by

      Savannah Brooks

      Wausau, WI

Many areas in Wisconsin have been hit hard by the recession. Over 846,000 Wisconsinites are receiving Food Stamp benefits, and over 836,000 Wisconsinites are currently living at or below the poverty rate, and 6.7% of Wisconsinites are underemployed.
It's time to bring the minimum wage back up to a living wage when adjusted for inflation and give today's young people the same chances our grandparents had in 1968 to work hard, save, move up the ladder and achieve. Bring Wisconsinites out of poverty and support the American Dream the way it was meant to be lived.

To:
Wisconsin state legislature, Governor Scott Walker
Join 10 other states and raise the minimum wage to $9.19/hour in Wisconsin

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I don't live in Wisconsin, I live in GA and we too were not included in the minimum wage hike, this sucks because we all need to raise the minimum wage to be able to make a decent living and keep up with the cost of living.
