Organizational Background
One Fair Wage is an organization seeking to raise wages, enhance working conditions
in the service sector and end all subminimum wages in the United States.
With the Great Resignation, millions of workers are refusing to work for subminimum
wages, employers are raising wages to recruit staff, and the political landscape to
advance policy to raise wages has changed dramatically. Given the historic moment,
One Fair Wage has launched an ambitious campaign to advance bills and ballot
measures in 25 states nationwide to raise wages and end subminimum wages in the US
- and through the process, engage millions of unlikely, low-wage worker voters
politically. One Fair Wage is thus advancing policy, voter engagement, employer
engagement, and culture shift activities to ultimately lift millions of tipped workers out of
poverty nationwide and engage them in the political process that governs their lives.
