OVER 50% OF IDAHO'S public school CHILDREN QUALIFY FOR FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH.
AN important INDICATOR OF POVERTY THAT is often
NO PERSON WILLING TO WORK SHOULD HAVE TO LIVE WITHOUT SECURE HOUSING, FOOD AND HEALTH CARE FOR THEMSELVES
OR THEIR FAMILY.
PEOPLE BECOME STRESSED AT THE BOTTOM OF the economIC LADDER and live shorter and SICKER LIVES.
Idaho has one of the lowest median wages in the nation. and It also has high rental costs in cities. as a result FOOD banks are used for basic support.
At RaiseIdaho we hope to gather the political force to get the minimum wage up in Idaho, either through the initiative or legislative process. In 2013-14 our small organization tried to get the 54 thousand signatures to make the Nov. 4 ballot, but failed to RECRUIT ENOUGH VOLUNTEERS to accomplish this. We had too little time to organize such an effort, but this process will go forward in 2015-16.
Please contact us to find out how you can make a difference in Idaho and become an active participant in helping our economy and our people!
