Stop being the Robber Barons of the 21st century.
The age of the Robber Barons is over, working people deserve living wages.
Fighting against people organizing for higher wages and advocating the total elimination of a federal minimum wage are just two of many reasons you represent 21st century Robber Barons.
Thanks to your lobbying efforts, the federal minimum wage of $7.25 hasn’t been raised since 2009.
But states and municipalities have been able to outsmart your exploitation of low wages by bypassing your federal-backed politicians. Now, 29 states and D.C. have wages above the current federal minimum wage!
This November four states will consider raising their minimum wages (Arizona, Maine, Colorado and Washington).
And we are calling on you to stay out of it! Stop exploiting low wage scales and interfering with the democratic process people are using to demand higher wages throughout the country!
Stop being the Robber Barons of the 21st century!
