What do working families in Maine need to thrive? Community Conversation in Hallowell
Series continues Sat. March 14 in Waterville
Mainers for Working Families hosted the first of several Community Conversations last night to talk about what Mainers and our representatives in Augusta can do to ensure working families can thrive in the Pine Tree State.
The discussion on March 4 at The Quarry Tap Room in Hallowell focused on expanding overtime protections, the benefits of repealing the estate tax exemption and how to reign in millions of dollars annually for the state of Maine by closing a corporate tax loophole.
Our panelists, Wendy Larson, owner of Slates Restaurant and Bakery, Rep. Charlotte Warren (D-Hallowell), and James Myall, a policy analyst with the Maine Center for Economic Policy, offered real-world insights into how Maine can lead the way in lifting up the quality of life of its workforce while supporting local businesses.

Saturday, March 14, Waterville
Thursday, March 26, Augusta
