Minimum Wage

Organizing for America Buys Ads Pushing for Minimum Wage Increase

Telling Congress "we" deserve a raise

|


President Obama's Organizing for Action says it's airing a new six-figure TV ad pushing Congress to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour.

"President Obama is urging Congress to give America a raise," the ad goes. "His plan raises the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour and requires equal pay for women to boost family incomes."

It concludes, "Congress: Give America a raise. We've earned it."

The ad comes after Obama made raising the minimum wage a key part of his State of the Union address last night.
