|Increase the Federal Minimum Wage|
Raising the United States federal minimum wage to just $10.90 would lift 4.5 million Americans out of poverty and benefit as many as one in five children in the country. The last minimum wage raise was in 2009 to $7.25, but should have been a full $3.65 higher to keep up with inflation. The cost of food, housing, transportation have all exploded, yet wages have stagnated.
For today's Secondary Action, help the 10.6 million workers living at or below the poverty line by urging US lawmakers to support a federal minimum wage increase.
