The federal minimum wage has been stuck at $7.25 an hour since July 24, 2009. A worker with a full-time minimum wage job earns just $14,500 annually—a salary that would put a single parent of two children below the poverty line. It is past time to raise the minimum wage to a level that provides working people with economic stability, instead of trapping them in poverty.
