Raise the Minimum Wage to $9 / hr

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

Raise the Minimum Wage to $9 an hour now.
There are currently 14,549 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

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.
