This session I have introduced HB 8, a minimum wage bill to the Georgia House of Representatives. HB 8 would raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour which would benefit all of Georgia’s working families.
A $15 minimum wage won’t break the economy. In fact, it will put money back into the economy. How can the economy grow if people can’t afford to purchase anything?
Unfortunately, HB 8 isn’t even getting a hearing because it is being held hostage by House Industry and Labor Committee Chairman Mark Hamilton. Don’t you think this bill deserves a fair hearing? Please contact Chairman Mark Hamilton and the other committee members and tell them it’s time to get the conversation going. Tell them you want them to have a hearing on HB 8. Here is all the contact information for the House Industry and Labor Committee. Here is a link to HB 8
