Tell your Representative: Americans need a raise.

Subject: Tell your Representative: Americans need a raise
Dear Friend

The need to keep pressing Congress on behalf of working class Americans to raise the minimum wage remains urgent. At just $7.25 an hour, or roughly $15,000 per year, the current federal minimum wageis leaving millions of hard working Americans in poverty. 

While we continue to work with Senator Tom Harkin and key allies to push the issue in the U. S. Senate, a key member of the House Democratic Leadership – Representative George Miller from California– just introduced parallel legislation on the House side that increases the minimum wage from $7.25 to $9.80 by 2014 then indexes it to inflation thereafter. He has asked his colleagues in the House to co-sponsor the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2012. 

It is crucial for us to generate support for Representative Miller’s effort because it will provide broader momentum for increasing the minimum wage in both chambers of Congress. 

I just signed a petition urging my Repesentative to cosponsor Representative Miller’s legislation to raise the minimum wage. I hope you do too. You can sign the petition and find out more information at the link below.
