JOIN fellows, alumni and staff braved chilly winds to Raise Up Massachusetts at the State House this morning! Over 400 workers, clergy, parents and organizers crowded the State House steps and met with legislators to call for a raise in the Massachusetts minimum wage — one that includes a hike for tipped workers and that would increase with the cost of living.
