If the minimum wage had kept pace with inflation since 1968, it would be $10.60 today – tell Congress to take action and raise wages for hard-working Americans.
Most minimum wage workers are adults with full-time jobs. Nearly half have some college education. Many have children.
The Fair Minimum Wage Act would raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour and make sure it keeps pace with the cost of living. That would boost the paychecks of more than 30 million workers in the U.S. It also gives tipped workers the first increase in their hourly wage in more than 20 years, and ensures their base wages will keep pace with living costs, too.
