WASHINGTON – The U.S. Conference of Mayors is urging Congress to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour and has garnered support from mayors across the country.
If the federal minimum wage was increased, it would help close to 28 million workers nationwide.
"We are calling for this Day of Action not only to urge Congress to increase the minimum wage but also to remind all of us that even though the economy is rebounding, the wage gap continues to expand at an alarming rate," said Mayor Johnson, who recently created a Cities of Opportunities Task Force.

So how are corporations paying a rate so low that it forces millions onto government welfare helping the economy?

yeah about that.. Why did the LAST min wage increase NOT work?
We have to do it again.. Makes no sense.. When will the next increase be scheduled after this to FIX the issue
The simple reason is obvious
Pay is not the problem
