Florida
For $15

The system is broken and has always been for too many people.

It’s hard to believe that the current minimum wage in Florida is $8.56/hr. And now, we are facing overlapping crises: an economic recession, the ongoing pandemic, and systemic racism.

Florida essential workers including fast-food, hospital, janitorial, airport, higher education, farm, and nursing home workers are putting our LIVES on the line every day. We are risking it all without enough PPE, sufficient sick days, or other protections, all for less than $15/hr. We report to work even as we watch co-workers get sick or even die because we can’t miss a paycheck. Our families deserve a living wage. Floridians have a chance to take matters into our own hands this November by voting YES on Amendment 2 and raising our state’s minimum wage to $15/hr to build a better future for our children and our communities.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

“The facts haven't compelled Florida lawmakers to raise the minimum wage. They seem to believe keeping workers in poverty makes the Sunshine State “attractive” to companies. That is why Amendment 2, which would gradually raise the minimum wage to $15 by 2026, is the only way to remediate that issue.”
