Raise The Minimum Wage

President Obama:
“[L]et’s declare that in the wealthiest nation on Earth, no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty,”
The food service industry grosses over 200 billion a year while the average salary of a fast food worker is 11,000 dollars a year.  An 8 hour day yields 56 dollars, who could live on that? 

Pass the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013, which raises the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour and provides the first increase to tipped employees in more than 20 years. It also indexes the minimum wage to the cost of living.
 Sign the petition to raise the minimum wage to 10.10 an hour. (MoveOn)
