Take action now to support Virginia’s farmworkers

Write comments in support of HB 1786 (Delegate Ward) to Eliminate farmworker and H-2 Exemptions from Virginia Minimum Wage Act.

STEP 1 – Copy the text below. Highlight the text and click ctrl+C (or cmd+C on a mac)

I support the HB 1786 because every year farmworkers come to Virginia to work hard to put food on our tables; they pay taxes and contribute to the local economy. So, what is the excuse for not including them in the minimum living wage? Support #Farmworkers in Virginia. We need to leave behind racist policies. Farmworkers deserve a living wage.
