Kelly Ayotte Has Consistently Opposed An Increase In The Minimum Wage

As Senate Democrats prepare to introduce legislation that would raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour over the next several years, vulnerable Republican incumbents like Kelly Ayotte will face serious problems defending their previous votes against a minimum wage increase.

“Kelly Ayotte has consistently voted against a minimum wage increase that would help working families make ends meet,” said Sadie Weiner, DSCC National Press Secretary. “Men and women who are willing to work hard for a living deserve a livable wage that doesn’t leave them and their families struggling, and Kelly Ayotte is going to have a hard time defending her callous votes against a minimum wage increase.”
