We know what the folks who stand to benefit from raising the wage actually look like — and the answer might surprise you: The average worker who would benefit is 35 years old, and more than half are women.

It’s a single mother trying to make sure her kids have enough to eat. It’s a college student working to pay her way through school. And they deserve a raise.

Help us get the word out. This issue is too important to ignore.

  1. I can’t tell you how this angers me. :(

  2. Enzi is an cretin! Cornyn is also a cretin! Actually anyone who voted against a fair wage are simply heartless cretins. The President, as always spoke the truth, I continue to be amazed at his calm in the face of these heartless and sad examples of humanity.
