Raising the Minimum Wage

Though there is cause for optimism in the recent modest rise in overall household incomes, the fact is that far too many full-time workers and their families live at or near poverty, and that their wages are not keeping pace with productivity or the overall growth in wages for higher-wage workers. Not surprisingly, a disproportionate share of workers in low-wage jobs are women and women of color, and nearly two-thirds of minimum wage workers in the United States are women. Thankfully, we have a set of proven and effective tools to raise wages and enforce proper payment.

Solutions:
– Raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour
– Pass the Wage Theft Prevention and Wage Recovery Act
– Extend minimum wage and overtime protections to home care workers
– Enforce violations of the new overtime regulation through immediate, publicly visible actions.
