Support a $15 Minimum Wage and Paid Leave!

Support a $15 Minimum Wage and Paid Leave!

This year, the New England Jewish Labor Committee is collecting signatures on two key legislative issues as a member of the Raise Up Massachusetts coalition:

  • Raising the minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Creating a statewide paid family and medical leave system to provide access to 12-16 weeks of paid leave for over 1 million workers in the Commonwealth

We are less than three weeks out from the end of the campaign, and we need your help to reach our goals. We have two major days coming up, and countless other opportunities if you can’t make it to these. If you’re interested in volunteering with us, email our Program Associate at

Our first day is Sunday, November 5th will be an opportunity to collect signatures at locations across the Boston area. If you are interested in having fun collecting signatures with folks from Dorshei Tzedek at some shopping areas in Watertown or in Newton locations, contact Amy Mazur, at If you want information on collecting signatures in other areas, click here.

Our second major opportunity to collect signatures is on Tuesday, November 7th It is election day and therefore the most important day of the campaign!  If you can, join us in collecting signatures at a polling location near you.  We especially encourage you to collect from 7am to 9am, when many people are voting before work. To sign up to collect signatures, email our Program Associate Elie at
