The federal minimum wage has been $7.25 for more than 11 years. Millions still struggle to get by on poverty wages, while the cost of rent, healthcare, and medicines keep going up.
For years, workers across the country have bravely stood up to demand better. Fast-food workers, healthcare workers, retail workers, and more have organized and taken action for $15 an hour and won widespread support. Today 2 in 3 Americans across the political spectrum are in support of a raise.
The time for bold action is now. Congress has a chance to benefit nearly 40 million people by raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour – but they’ll only do it if WE demand action.
