Who is Raise Up Massachusetts?
Raise Up Massachusetts is a grassroots coalition of community organizations, religious groups, and labor unions committed to building an economy that works for all of us. We’re focused on three issues of critical importance to working families in Massachusetts:
Paid Family and Medical Leave will ensure that Massachusetts workers are not forced to choose between work and their own health needs or the well-being of their children and other family members.
The Fight for $15 will make sure workers can earn a living wage of $15 an hour, so they can make ends meet and feed their families.
The Fair Share Amendment will invest in quality public schools, affordable higher education, and a transportation system that works by creating an additional tax of four percentage points on annual income above one million dollars.
