STATEMENT OF SUPPORT
Do you have a business, congregation, or organization that will officially endorse KC for $15? Copy-Paste and send this statement of support to your email lists and post it on social media to declare you are standing up for what's right.
Here at ______________ we believe that in Kansas City an honest day’s work deserves an honest day’s pay. We believe that all people deserve to make enough to provide for themselves and their families, no matter what job they hold. We believe they deserve this specifically because they are people, because we value their lives and care about the struggles of each Kansas Citian.
We believe in a living wage for every worker!
That is why we are hereby endorsing a YES vote on Question 3 of the August 8, 2017 ballot in Kansas City, Missouri. This vote would raise the minimum wage in Kansas City to $10 per hour right away and steadily increase to $15 per hour by 2022.
At a time when Kansas City has the highest two-bedroom rental costs in the state of Missouri, when nearly half of Kansas Citians make less than $15 per hour, when our neighbors are working full-time or even keeping multiple jobs yet still living in poverty, and when Kansas City’s children are hungry, this is a moral issue.
Stand up for your values and help Question 3 pass on August 8. Register to vote by July 12, 2017 at https://www.kceb.org/voters/register/.
