MassBudget is a leading think tank advancing equitable policy solutions that create an inclusive, thriving Commonwealth.
MassBudget has been credited with providing the research and analysis necessary for the achievement of critical policy advances including: raising the Massachusetts $15 minimum wage, establishing Paid Family & Medical Leave, achieving Earned Paid Sick Time, fairer corporate taxes that have netted substantial revenue for vital state programs, boosting take-home pay for low-income families through Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) increases, and playing a substantial role in the passage of the nation’s most progressive K-12 education funding bill – the 2019 Student Opportunity Act.
Racial and economic justice require tax justice and equitable state investment.
