Barnstead Cub Scouts recently visited the Barnstead Fire Department.
The Firemen gave us a lot of information about their jobs and the fire
station. Then we toured the garage area and saw all the fire Equipment.
I am deeply disappointed in the lack of
responsibility and care that Republican legislators continue to show for
New Hampshire working families. By failing to pass SB 83, Senate
Republicans have proven once again that they will put partisan politics
before New Hampshire citizens.
Over the last four years, twenty-eight
states have raised their minimum wages including Connecticut, Maine,
Massachusetts and Vermont. Research continues to show that workers who
are paid a fair salary are more engaged employees and more active
consumers in our economy.
New Hampshire uses the federal
minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. For someone working 40 hours per
week, that totals $15,000 per year; no one can support a family on that
salary. Thank you to our Democratic Representatives and Senators
who continue to fight for a living wage.
Isn’t it about time for
Republican legislators to finally stand up for our working families?
