    Most recently, MCAN played a major role in winning an increase in the minimum wage to $11 an hour, and earned sick time for all workers on the ballot last November.  These two victories benefit over 1 million MA workers, and the increase in the minimum wage puts $1 billion into the pockets of low-wage workers.  Grassroots leaders from many racial, socio-economic and religious backgrounds lead the organizing.  The next two organizing campaigns in their drive for racial and economic justice are to reduce mass incarceration and win a “fair share” tax on millionaires.
