“Having a real and substantial conversation about raising the minimum wage is a part of a necessary discussion we need to have about raising people’s incomes in general,” said City Councilor Joe Baldacci.
After a successful Minimum Wage Town Hall in Bangor City Councilor Joe Baldacci continues to inform the public about the advantages of raising the minimum wage in Maine, as it will help the lives and livelihoods of many citizens. It can help local businesses too, as more people will have funds to spend in local shops.
