Lobbying to Sustain Inequality
Congress will soon vote on a measure that would raise the national minimum wage to $10.10 and bring the tipped wage to 70 percent of the full minimum.
The Fair Minimum Wage Act would give millions of American workers a long-overdue raise. Today’s $7.25-per-hour minimum isn’t a living wage anywhere in America. In fact, the average cost of living in America would require closer to $15 per hour.
