Statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Senate Minimum Wage Vote


April 30, 2014




With this vote, America can make a clear moral judgment about where its political leaders stand.


This issue deserves more than a partisan response. Raising the minimum wage is bigger than politics; it’s the right thing to do. It will create jobs and grow our economy. Politicians are elected to represent their constituents.  A “yes” vote is the way to prove it.
