UFCW Michigan members recently gathered at the State Capitol in Lansing to lobby their state legislators about increasing the minimum wage.

More than 100 members from UFCW Locals 876 and 951 participated in UFCW Michigan’s seventh annual Lobby Day.  Members met with legislators and staff in support of SB 203 and HB 4554 which would raise Michigan’s minimum wage in stages to reach $10 an hour by 2016.

Raising the minimum wage would provide all Michigan families the opportunity for a better life and economic security, build stronger communities, and ensure no one who works full time lives in poverty.
