But we never expected this: when we proposed raising the minimum wage, Snyder said that "it wasn’t a significant issue." Then just a few days later Governor Snyder gave his closest advisors huge pay raises, with one getting a 90% raise!
Before Governor Snyder’s State of The State address next week, we’ve set a big goal. We need 10,000 Michiganders to sign our petition and demand that Snyder support Mark's plan to raise the minimum wage to $9.25 an hour.

But we need to make sure the governor realizes the problem isn’t his advisors' salaries. It’s the single mom working two jobs to try and make ends meet. Tell Governor Snyder it’s long past time to address this huge problem and support Mark's plan to raise the minimum wage to $9.25 an hour.
Demand that Governor Snyder do the right thing and support raising the minimum wage to $9.25 an hour.
