Starting next week, Maine voters will see television advertisements featuring several of the more than 600 Maine small business owners that support the campaign to raise the state’s minimum wage.
As small business owners, we advocate for policies that promote responsible economic development, environmental stewardship, and investment in community. We are the backbone of Maine’s economy, and we help provide a political voice for Maine’s small business community. We believe that good economic policy works both for small business owners and the customers they serve.
The owners of these businesses all support raising the minimum wage AND their stores are Pokemon Go PokeStops or gyms! You can see the full list of over 550 Maine small business owners that support Yes on Question 4 here.
Are there other businesses that support the campaign and are PokeStops or Gyms? Let us know about them on Facebook or Twitter.
Support the restaurants that support fair wages; have a chance to win a free meal!
You probably already know that hundreds of Maine small business owners publicly support this year’s referendum to raise Maine’s minimum wage to $12 by 2020 and to gradually increase wages for tipped workers as well.
