Every American deserves to earn a living wage. No one should work forty or more hours a week and still be unable to provide for their family.
We need to respect our nation’s most valuable asset: the working men and women who keep our country running. They deserve the dignity of being able to earn an honest living.
According to the OECD, the poverty level of the United States is now below that of Mexico, with 17.8% of Americans now living at or below the poverty line.
Is a livable minimum wage too much to ask for?
