Congress: Pass the Raise the Wage Act

The Raise the Wage Act would benefit 35 million workers by gradually raising the minimum wage to $12 by 2020. This will help millions of families put food on the table, pay rent, and give more economic security. Minimum wage workers come in all ages, races, shapes, and sizes. In fact, according to the Economic Policy Institute, there are more workers age 55 and older who would benefit from the increased minimum wage than teenagers.
