Happiest of new years to you all! I appreciate your comments and signatures! We leveled off at 56 and needed 100. I am afraid that the term "sanction" might have scared people off. Also some people questioned my accuracy on the federal minimum wage in Mexico. It is unbelievable that they are being paid roughly 62 CENTS an hour.
I am totally open to suggestions for rewriting. One friend from Mexico suggested taking out the word sanction - as in "petition our government to petition their government to raise the minimum wage".
They have a presidential election this year too - their best choice for the people goes by the initials AMLO (Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador), Their 2006 Calderon election was rigged so we shall see.
Any thoughts? Also the Obama administration has an official site to create petitions. That site needs 25,000 signatures in a one month period to go forward. That is no easy task.
Again, thank you all so much.
