A handful of citizens were out gathering signatures and raising general awareness for increasing Oregon's minimum wage Saturday in downtown Eugene. It was part of a statewide effort by the Fair Shot for All Coalition with similar efforts taking place in Portland, Salem, and Bend. Regional Outreach Director Laurie Trieger says raising the minimum wage is an issue that resonates with working women and minorities.
