Take Action! Tell your legislators to raise North Carolina’s minimum wage!
Too many North Carolina workers are locked into low-wage jobs that don’t pay enough to cover the basics, even though they’re working full-time or more. This is stifling our state economy— as working people struggle to afford necessities, they spend less money at businesses in their communities.
The General Assembly had several opportunities during the 2015-2016 legislative session to raise North Carolina’s minimum wage from the current federal minimum of $7.25 an hour. Yet legislative leaders refused to act.
Take Action! Tell our lawmakers you’re counting on them to do right by North Carolina’s working families, and pass legislation to raise North Carolina’s wage floor.
