Campaign to Raise National Minimum Wages Continues

Share this post

Members of Americans United for Change attended a rally in Washington today at the end of an 11 state bus tour in a campaign to raise the minimum wage. Organization President Lee Saunders, flanked by the secretary of labor and other democratic leaders, said the issue of raising the national minimum wage shouldn't even be a topic for debate and that it makes him angry that in 2014 there actually is a debate about whether we should raise a wage that has less purchasing power today than it did in 1968.
Labor Secretary Tom Perez says raising the minimum wage would reduce the food stamp budget by 4.6 billion dollars.
