Pass the Fair Minimum Wage Act

Most minimum-wage earners work for big corporations. These corporations keep giving their CEOs bigger bonuses every year, but then claim they can’t afford to pay their employees.

The current federal minimum wage – $7.25 per hour – is not enough for a full-time worker to lift a family out of poverty. It is lower than it was in the 1960s, adjusted for inflation.

Raise the minimum to $10.10 and indexes it to inflation. It alsos raises the minimum wage for tipped workers (at present a miserly $2.13 per hour) for the first time in 20 years.

Use the form below to tell Congress that you want the minimum wage raised.
