Dear MoveOn member,
Things are heating up in the fight to raise the minimum wage for the first time in over seven years. The Senate is expected to vote next week and today MoveOn released polling info showing that House Republicans will pay a price in November for blocking a raise for millions of American workers.1
That's why MoveOn members across the country are holding a national day of action to demand Republicans increase the minimum wage.MoveOn members near you are gathering tomorrow,Tuesday, Apr. 1, at 11:00 a.m. to rally outside Rep. Grimm's office in Staten Island and present a petition signed by hundreds of constituents.
It's important that we have a big crowd tomorrow to send a strong message to Rep. Grimm and any local press that shows up. Can you make it?
For more details about the event, check the invitation below.
Thanks for all you do.–Matt B., Ilya, Matt P., Linda, and the rest of the team
