Gov. Newsom, don't hurt the working class!
Californians need an $18 minimum wage now!

About This Petition

The working people of California made their voices heard loud and clear when more than ONE MILLION Californians signed the California Living Wage Act proposal to get an $18 minimum wage on the ballot in November. However, the California Secretary of State is claiming that the signatures are not valid because they were submitted on July 13th instead of June 30th, despite local election officials’ insistence that July 13th is the correct date. When asked for his opinion by the press, Gov. Newsom’s office merely reiterated that the date for submitting signatures has passed and remained silent on holding a special election.

In Gavin Newsom’s role as the Governor of California, it’s time for him to step up to the plate and help the working class. We, the undersigned, call on Governor Gavin Newsom to hold a special election so the working people of California can get a $6,240 raise - right now!
