Raise the Minimum Wage to $9 an hour now.
Why is this important?
The Minimum Wage in America is currently $7.25 an hour. If the minimum wage had just stayed even with inflation since 1968 it would now be $10.56 an hour. Raising it to $9 is only fair. That’s $18,720 a year for someone working a 40-hour workweek, just above the poverty line for a family of three.
