Mission

The Raise the Wage Nebraska’s ballot initiative aims to gradually increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2026 and continue to adjust each after that for inflation.

An increase in the minimum wage benefits about 20% of Nebraska workers or 195,000 Nebraskans.

Raising the minimum wage will help close the gender pay gap. 60% of Nebraskans who will benefit from an increase in the minimum wage are women.

Raising the minimum wage will help close the racial pay gap. 32% of Nebraskans who will benefit from an increase in the minimum wage are people of color.
