Please tell us about your story. How do low wages impact you and your family? How do you make ends meet? What sacrifices do you have to make? If you are a parent, what does living on low wages mean for your children? Have you or do you now rely on some form of assistance such as SNAP food stamps?*
If you got a raise to, say, $12 or $15 per hour, what would it allow you to do? How would your life change?
If you had the chance to talk to a lawmaker who might vote on raising the minimum wage, what would you tell them?
