Tell Congress: Raise the minimum wage

Millions of hard-working Americans are trapped in poverty or just one step out of poverty, trying their hardest to create a better future for their families.

Right now, someone who works full-time at a minimum-wage job in the United States earns just $15,080 a year. For a family of three, that’s $4,000 below the poverty line. The minimum wage is a poverty wage – and that’s just wrong.

Together, we can right this wrong – ask your member of Congress to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 to help more than 25 million working men and women and their families across America. Send your message now!
