Being the fact that OUR NC minimum wage is at its all time low. Thousands of North Carolinians seem to struggle each year bc of low wages this prestige state has to offer. From citizens with backgrounds to citizens without a background, we still struggle to make ends meet. Most of us have to either pick up multiple jobs of employment or even pick up double shifts. Then you have the rest that have to result in self shaming acts like, prostitution, selling illegal substances or even dancing at exotic clubs and some even have side hustles such as: doing hair on the side, private childcare even some result in selling their food stamps benefits. And this is why this petition must go in to effect ASAP!!! We are TIRED of struggling TIRED of watching the wealthy get wealthy as we sit beneath them picking up crumbs off the ground they have disrespected. Good hard working citizens are to be treated with much more delicacy than to be treated like an slave. Which still exists but this time color has no par take in THIS!!. How can we make America great AGAIN when America only wants to choose who is to be great.? From large tax deductions to major layoffs and PEOPLE being forced to take hard daily ordeals on their job just be able to bring home a check that will only be good for 1 or 2 bills. Most of these people have been on their jibs for years and still don't have the necessary income to meet their monthly responsibilities. When will someone speak up for us? Who will defend our people against this matter.?? I am 1 voice for thousands that dont have the voice to speak up. Well not this TIME!!! Stand up with ME!!! Lets rise against a state that is more than capable of providing the thing we need the most!!! Which is certainty.... SIGN THIS PETITION!! LET US NOT BE LEFT OUT AS THE REST OF OUR NATION RISES OFF OUR TRANSGRESSIONS... We deserve a chance to have a comfortable life. You think about it.? They have money to build up more apartments, houses, businesses and highways. But not enough money to give us a reason to want to be part of a growing society. Its time we step and speak up. Follow ME!! I Will be your motivational speaker. I will step up to our government and use all our input to get our points across. I will lead our PEOPLE of NORTH CAROLINA TO LAND WHERE EVERYONE IS EQUAL AND NOONE IS LEFT BEHIND!!! WALK WITH ME!! AND I PROMISE I WILL NOT STRAY NOR SLEEP UNTIL OUR NEEDS ARE MET.
