Raise the Minimum Wage!

Over the last four decades, income inequality has been eating away at the American social fabric. It is a core American value that those who work hard and play by the rules not be left to live or retire in poverty. 

In recent years, 95% of all new income in America has gone to the top 1%. And, at the same time, workers’ wages have been stagnant. This unequal growth in wages is responsible for one-third of Social Security’s projected long-term funding shortfall. 

Join us in calling on Congress to raise the minimum wage and strengthen our Social Security system. Tell the Republicans in the House to stop standing in the way of a fair wage for workers!
