Clinton Calls for Clean Minimum Wage Bill

Senator Clinton issued a clear statement yesterday calling for the Senate to pass a clean minimum wage bill:
"The House sent a strong message of support for working families today by approving the minimum wage increase as a clean, stand-alone bill. The Senate should do the same so that we can speed this critically needed pay increase to working families."
Working Families hopes Sen. Schumer will do the same.

Send a message to both New York's Senators here.

This ought to be a "clean" bill because it is an amendment to the Fair Labor Standards Act.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt once stated that if a business had to pay sub-standard wages in order to survive, that business should not operate in the U.S.
