Montgomery County is known as one of the most progressive jurisdictions in the nation, however after an eight month fight, a bill raising the minimum wage to $15 narrowly passed the all-Democratic Council. County Executive Ike Leggett then became the first Democrat to veto a $15 minimum wage bill.
It's clear we can no longer be complacent and assume our elected officials will look out for our best interests. We must build a powerful grassroots movement of working class people who will:
- Hold politicians accountable when they fail to stand up for working people
- Elect truly progressive candidates at all levels of government
- Help grow the movement by getting involved in their local communities
Will you volunteer to help build the movement?

The Montgomery County Council is considering a bill that would raise the county minimum wage to $15/hour by 2020. Help ensure it's a strong bill that protects all workers–no exceptions, no exemptions.
Montgomery County is one of the most expensive regions of the country and many workers are being priced out with women and people of color being hardest hit by low wages. Montgomery County should be a place where everyone can afford to live and thrive.
Please sign to ask the Montgomery County Council to pass a strong minimum wage bill that includes all workers.
