"Live the Wage" ChallengeJuly 24, 2014
July 24th marks 5 years since the last federal minimum wage increase and America can’t wait any longer. While corporate profits and CEO salaries skyrocket, the minimum wage remains stuck at $7.25 an hour, well below the poverty line. We need to raise the minimum wage so that workers have more money to support themselves and their families. More money for workers means more customers for businesses. More customers means more jobs and a stronger economy for everyone. This July, join the national movement to raise the minimum wage by taking the Live the Wage Challenge! 2014 Bridges to Community Immigration Encounter for YouthJuly 26, 2014
