While Speaker Boehner has been sitting on his hands and a minority in the Senate blocked a bill to raise the minimum wage, OFA supporters have been organizing.
Our petition is about real Americans raising their voices together -- and so far, nearly half a million supporters have signed it.
These are the voices that lawmakers across the country need to hear -- that's why OFA volunteers will deliver the signatures we collect to key representatives. Before we do, make sure your name is on it right now.
The American people are behind this -- more than seven in 10 support raising the wage. That's what makes it all the more absurd that a minority in the Senate blocked a vote this spring on a bill to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, the first increase in five years.
OFA supporters are taking this issue into our own hands. We've seen again and again the progress we can achieve together when we're united behind a cause.
Your signature is your voice, and it looks like you haven't added it to this petition.
It's not too late -- sign the petition to raise the minimum wage today:
