Tell Congressional Republicans: Restore a Fair Minimum Wage

Become a Citizen Co-Sponsor of the Fair Minimum Wage Act

Families across our country are struggling each day just to make ends meet. The Fair Minimum Wage Act would increase the income of 14,000 Hawaii workers by raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 over two years.


This legislation also takes a much needed step forward in addressing the gender pay gap.  Nearly two out of every three workers making minimum wage or less are women, and they make up the vast majority of the 10 largest occupations that pay under $10.10.  


Join me in telling Congress that we need to put aside partisan games and restore fair pay for hardworking people across the country.


To Congressional Republicans: 

I join Senator Brian Schatz as a Citizen Co-Sponsor of the Fair Minimum Wage Act.


Hardworking individuals deserve a fair wage. Restoring the value of the minimum wage is vital for our families and for our nation’s economy.    


People who do essential jobs in our communities, like home health aides and childcare workers, deserve to be paid fairly.


It’s time for Congress to pass the Fair Minimum Wage Act.
