Petition to raise the minimun wage in... March 24, 2006 2:57 PM


The federal minimum wage is only $5.15 an hour. It hasn't been
increased since 1997, even though the prices of gas,
electricity, food, and housing have all been on the rise.
Senator Edward Kennedy introduced the Federal Minimum Wage Act
to help raise the standard of living for minimum wage workers.
He's asking for people to sign on as citizen co-sponsors to this
bill to help show Congress there is broad support to increase
the minimum wage. Help make a difference - sign on as a citizen
co-sponsor of the Federal Minimum Wage Act!

Just go to the URL below to show your support for increasing the
minimum wage:

People need to be paid what they are worth in a free economy.

Some people aren't worth it.

But mainly, it will cause people in CA to want to raise our already ridiculously high minimum wage.

Sure people should make more.  But first and formost, people need to be worth what they are paid.

Both of what you are saying is the reason why we should fight for congress to be paid minimum wage salaries...they sure aren't worth much more and the rate was rise quickly if we did....

Jeff, I will agree with you. $100 an hour is very good standard of living. No worries, have creature comforts as well as a good home. Yes Congress raise that minimum wage to $100 an hour.  [ send green star]
