Congress: It's time to raise the minimum wage.

Raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour would boost the paychecks of over 30 million workers in the U.S. And the benefits of the increase will reverberate across the economy.

According to the Economic Policy Institute, raising the minimum wage to $10.10 will generate $30 billion in economic activity and create 140,000 new jobs over three years. Sign the petition to add your support.

By signing this petition, I'm urging you to pass the Minimum Wage Fairness Act, which raises the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour and provides the first increase to tipped employees in more than 20 years. It also indexes the minimum wage to the cost of living.
