Tell Florida Lawmakers: Don’t Lower Our Minimum Wage

Floridians believe that everybody who works for a living should be paid enough to provide a decent and healthy life. That’s why we voted overwhelmingly to increase the minimum wage in 2020. 

Florida Lawmakers now want to chip away at that living wage law by introducing a so-called “training wage.”

This loophole could mean the end of a real, meaningful living wage for millions of Floridians, especially if employers can just hire and fire new employees every six months to keep them on the “training wage.”

Sign the petition: we voted to increase the minimum wage and we meant that.
