We Need to Raise This (Because $15,000 a Year Is Not Enough)

Could you live on $15,000 a year? Some 3.5 million hourly workers who earn the minimum wage do (some make even less). 

In the United States, people are working harder than ever, yet most of America's working families lost $4,000 in income every year for the past decade. 

A minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is not enough. While 13 states are raising their minimum wage this year, we need action for all working people in America. 

Watch the video in the post and call your senators at 1-888-705-5182 asking them to support raising the minimum wage.
