For more than four years, the federal minimum wage has been frozen at $7.25 an hour. A family with two children that earns minimum wage lives below the poverty line. This is unacceptable.
Raising the minimum wage would lift millions of hardworking Americans out of poverty. Despite the indisputable benefits – and despite support for raising the minimum wage from 80% of Americans – congressional Republicans are blocking legislation on this common sense measure. We can't let them get away with hurting working America's working families.
Add your voice and demand Congress raise the minimum wage and lift Americans out of poverty.
