In the wake of a Great Recession that hit
low-income workers hardest, America is coming around to a simple fact: Raising
the minimum wage is not only good ethics but also good economics. It is ethical responsibility of Corporations to pay a reasonable living pay to workers. When
corporations fail to pay, the economy fails to grow.
Today, a parent working
full-time at minimum wage will simply not earn enough income to cover basic
needs like food, clothing, and shelter. Even working a second job and well over
40-hours a week, it's mathematically impossible for many minimum wage workers
to pay for childcare, clothing, and gas. If you doubt these claims, take a look
budget"that a major employer recently distributed to
its employees. The best way to turn our
economy around is to invest in the people who keep it running: Low-income
workers. By getting more income into the hands of hard-working people who will
spend it, we will create more business for American companies and eliminate
much of the need for government assistance.
