Isn’t it time to raise the minimum wage?
President Obama thinks so – that’s why, in his State of the Union address, he proposed we raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.
In the wealthiest nation on earth, when the wealthiest among us are making more than ever, but a full-time worker making minimum wage lives below the poverty line, isn’t it time for a change?
Unfortunately, Republicans don’t think so. House Speaker John Boehner has already come out publicly against any minimum wage hike.
Take action today to demand that Republicans support President Obama’s federal minimum wage proposal.
- Rep. John Boehner and House Republicans
President Obama’s plan to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 is essential to an economy where everyone gets a fair shot and a fair shake.
Today, a full time worker making minimum wage lives below the poverty line. In the wealthiest nation on Earth, that’s not right.
Stand with President Obama on raising the federal minimum wage today.
