“The mental hoops I had to jump through to convince myself things were going to work out and I was going to have enough money to make rent and buy food were ridiculous. If I had a living wage… I would have been able to more comfortably live my life instead of fearing overdraft fees and bankruptcy.”
Hannah Robinson shared this as part of her experience working minimum wage jobs in this morning’s virtual launch. If you missed the live stream, you can hear Hannah’s powerful speech here.
When we work together, raising the minimum wage is pretty straightforward. We collect signatures; we vote. But it’s still hard work and it’s important to take time to celebrate our community of advocates together. Whether you’re just learning about the campaign, or you’ve been on the streets with us since day one, we want to see you!
You’re invited to Raise The Wage Nebraska’s signature party this Thursday from 4-6 pm CT at the Tavern in the Haymarket.
Sign, hang out, grab a drink, play a game, and meet the other cool folks who make up this campaign. RSVP to the Facebook event here. See you on Thursday!
