Subject: It is time to raise the minimum wage

Dear Friend,

The need to keep pressing Congress on behalf of working-class Americans to raise the minimum wage remains urgent. At just $7.25 an hour, or roughly $15,080 per year, the current federal minimum wage is leaving millions of hardworking Americans in poverty.

While we continue to work with key allies to push the issue in the U.S. Senate, we need to build heat on the Republican leadership in the House in favor of legislation introduced by Rep. George Miller of California that increases the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 and indexes it to inflation thereafter.

It is crucial for us to generate support for Representative Miller's effort because it will provide broader momentum for increasing the minimum wage in both chambers of Congress.

I just signed a petition urging my member of Congress to cosponsor Representative Miller's legislation to raise the minimum wage. I hope you do too. You can sign the petition and find out more information at the link below.
