As of tomorrow – January 1, 2017 – minimum wage in Massachusetts is set to increase to $11. While the group Raise Up Massachusetts, of which Mass IWJ is a coalition member, originally worked on the increase taking place tomorrow, as WBUR notes:
“…Raise Up Massachusetts in November began advocating for a $15 statewide pay floor, calling it ‘the next step in the campaign for livable wages.'”
Look out for ways you can join Mass IWJ in 2017 as we Fight for $15 in the Commonwealth.
