Victory - The Kansas Legislature approves a new minimum wage!

Today, on the very last day and the last hour of the normal legislative session both chambers of the Kansas Legislature have agreed upon a bill to raise the Kansas Minimum wage to $7.25 effective Jan 1st, 2010. At $2.65 per hour, Kansas had the lowest minimum wage in the Nation.

But now, due to a well-run grassroots campaign led by the Kansas Action Network, Kansas finally has a minimum wage that matches the Federal Minimum wage. The Wichita Branch NAACP is proud to have been a member of the Raise the Wage coalition and we wish to publicly thank Mr. Jake Lowen of the Kansas Action Network for his excellent work and tireless advocacy on this issue.

You did great work Jake... And we thank you on behalf of our organization and our constituents. Your efforts have made a difference in the lives of thousands of Kansans...
