Moms are working hard for our country. Isn’t it about time that our country works for moms!?
Raising the miminum wage matters to moms. 56% of minimum wage workers are women; and 28% have children.
It’s time for Congress to increase the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 by 2015.
Raising the minimum wage will boost moms, dads, and everyone -- AND it will also boost our economy.
In fact, studies show that 140,000 new jobs would be created by raising the minimum wage, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago says a raise in the minimum wage would help our economy by increasing household spending nationwide by about $48 billion, even benefiting the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
This is a win-win for everyone. Fill out the letter on the right and tell Congress to #RaisetheWage!
