Workers are the backbone of our state. All work should be treated with dignity, and all workers should be compensated fairly. Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour will ensure our workers earn a fair and livable wage. Senate Bill 452 requires the state to increase wage to $10.15 upon enactment, $15 within one year, adjust to inflation following, restores local control to set their own minimum wage and ends tipped wage.
Here in Wisconsin we believe that an honest day's work deserves an honest day's pay. We need fair, livable wages that will provide meaningful support for ordinary Wisconsinites.
