SIGN THE PETITION TO RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE

In 2013, CEOs of S&P 500 companies made 331 times the average wages of rank-and-file workers. We can help close that gap by pressing our lawmakers to do the right thing for working families and pass the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013. It would provide a needed increase to $10.10 an hour, increase the tipped minimum wage for the first time in more than 20 years and help lift more than half of the nation’s working poor out of poverty.
