Raise the minimum wage to  $ 15.00 an hour -Tampa, FLorida

Americans are still suffering from one of the worst recessions in history, yet wages have flatlined. The time has come to raise the minimum wage in our community.

Why is this important?

Out of all developed nations, the United States has the most unequal distribution of wealth. Middle class wages have remained stagnant, while the top 1% have seen 95% of the gains.

Raising the minimum wage is one of the best ways to combat income inequality and give Americans a raise.
