Americans need a raise. It's been ten years, the longest stretch of time since the minimum wage was created in 1938, since Congress last increased the federal minimum wage. Today is a national call-in day to support the Raise the Wage Act, which the House of Representatives will soon be voting on: call 1-877-782-8274 to get connected to your member of Congress. "Tell your Representative to support the Raise the Wage Act by voting yes when it comes up for a floor vote and voting no on any amendments that weaken the bill," urges the Coalition of Labor Union Women, which is supporting the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and allies for the national call-in day.
