Raising wages & expanding health care

In 2020, The Fairness Project worked with grassroots groups to win a ballot measure expanding Medicaid in Missouri. This victory delivers health care to more than 230,000 Missourians and sends a strong message that Americans everywhere want more health care — not less.

In 2018, The Fairness Project worked with local partners to pass a ballot initiative to increase the minimum wage from $7.85 an hour in 2018 to $12 an hour in 2023 for 677,000 Missourians.
