It's time to Raise the Wage

It's time to Raise the Wage

 

More than 27 million workers have been waiting four-plus years for Congress to raise the minimum wage. This country is supposed to be the land of opportunity. No one who works full time and plays by the rules should still struggle to pay for basic necessities. But in recent decades, corporate CEOs have been taking a greater share of the economic pie while workers’ wages have stagnated. 

Sen. Tom Harkin has introduced the Minimum Wage Fairness Act, S. 1737, in the Senate, which would raise the minimum wage to $10.10 over the course of 2½ years. 

Tell the Senate to vote yes on S. 1737 and raise the minimum wage.
