$15 Minimum Wage Working Session

 

maine_greens_circle_transparant.pngThe Portland chapter of the Maine Greens will soon begin the process to create a living wage of $15 an hour for Portland workers via a citizens’ initiative.

Dismayed that their Mayor’s tepid proposal will still leave far too many residents unable to afford Portland's skyrocketing cost of living, the Portland Greens’ ordinance will create a true living wage for Portland’s working people.

We've already seen from examples around the USA where meaningful minimum wage increases have passed, that contrary to prevailing political thought, a higher minimum wage does not result in job loss-- but the opposite.  

Over and over we've seen that a meaningful minimum wage increase instead facilitates more money flowing through the local community, leading to job growth and an improved economy.

There are currently two working proposals that approach the way in which this wage increase will be applied. There will be a meeting in room 24 at city hall, Wednesday, March 11th at 5:30, where the Portland Greens will finalize the details. Public and Press are welcome to attend.
