Raise the Minimum Wage

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Pass the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013, which would raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour and provide the first increase to tipped employees in more than 20 years. It would also index the minimum wage to the cost of living.
There are currently 79,293 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour would boost the paychecks of over 30 million workers in the U.S. The majority are adults with full-time jobs, and nearly half have some college education.

If the minimum wage had kept pace with inflation since 1968, it would be $10.60 today. Tell Congress you support this fix.
