Senate Nears Minimum Wage Decision

This afternoon, the U.S. Senate is scheduled to start floor debate on raising the minimum wage.

Senators need to step up and do the right thing for working families. House Democrats have already shown the courage of their convictions by passing a clean minimnum wage increase with no strings attached. But some Senators want to back down in the face of a threatened Republican filibuster and attach $8 billion in tax breaks to a minimum wage increase.

Senator Clinton has taken the right position. Our Senators need to know that we want a clean minimum wage increase with no strings attached.

Tell Senator Clinton and Senator Schumer to hold firm and match the House of Representatives by raising the minimum wage with no strings attached.
