10.9 million children depend on the minimum wage for food, clothing, shelter, medicine, and education.
Paying the minimum wage is a simple statement: You would get less if it were not illegal.
Paying a fair days wage for a fair days work is not in the nature of corporations. CEO’s get bonuses for increasing today’s corporate bottom line, not for being fair, just, equitable, compassionate, or caring about the future of America.
The only way to ensure all Americans have an opportunity to participate in the American dream is through Government. The minimum wage must be increased. Left up to wealthy CEO’s, America’s future is not a concern.
