WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

With Republicans in Congress blocking an increase in the minimum wage, which is currently stuck at just $7.25 an hour, many workers can’t even afford to pay for an average two-bedroom apartment by working a 40-hour week. Today, the real value of the federal minimum wage is actually a few dollars lower than it was in 1968. Boosting the minimum wage would give a much-needed pay raise to hundreds of thousands of workers and create jobs by injecting more money into local economies. In April, two legislatures did exactly that. Workers in Maryland will soon earn a minimum of $10.10 an hour and in Minnesota $9.50 an hour, indexed to inflation. Petitions launched on CREDOMobilize.com by local CREDO Action members and signed by thousands in both states helped push legislators to act and boost the growing national momentum for a higher minimum wage.
