Tell the Legislature: Let Oregonians Raise the Local Minimum Wage!

To be delivered to The Oregon State House and The Oregon State Senate

Petition Statement

Oregon communities should have the right to raise the local minimum wage, but our state's outdated "preemption" law is standing in the way. It's time to do away with the law, and allow Oregon communities to join the fight for $15!
There are currently 128 signatures. NEW goal - We need 200 signatures!

Petition Background

From Seattle to San Francisco to Los Angeles, cities and counties up and down the West Coast are leading the charge to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour and lifting thousands of working families out of poverty along the way.

Why not Portland, Eugene, Salem or Bend? Oregon law currently prohibits cities, counties, and local governments from setting a minimum wage that is higher than the state minimum. It's called "preemption" and it's holding us back.

It's time to do away with Oregon's minimum wage preemption law and allow local communities to set their own minimum wage. Add your name!
