FreedomWorks Efforts Critical to Defeating Virginia Minimum Wage Hike in State Senate

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to S.B. 1200, a bill that sought to institute a $15 minimum wage, FreedomWorks activists drove nearly 3,000 messages to Virginia state legislators urging them to oppose the bill. The bill was supported by a variety of Virginia progressive organizations and labor unions. On Sunday, the bill was defeated by a vote of 19-21 on the senate floor. Two senators who had previously voted the bill out of committee opposed the bill in the final floor vote.
