Rep. Danny K. Davis: Why I Am A Co-Sponsor Of The Raise The Wage Act

  • Gradually raising the minimum wage to $15 by 2024 will be good for workers, good for businesses, and good for th economy. This proposal will put money in the pockets of 40 million hardworking Americans who will then spend that money in the local economy, which is why a majority of people support phasing in a $15 minimum wage. 
  • No person working full-time in the richest nation on earth should be living in poverty, but there is no place in America where a full-time worker making $7.25 an hour can afford the basic essentials. After 10 years with no increase in the minimum wage, the rising cost of living is leaving more and more working families behind.
  •  
  • American workers are more productive than ever, but they are not getting a fair share of economic growth. Raising the minimum wage is one part of Democrats’ commitment to get workers and middle-class families a long overdue raise.
