Millions of hardworking minimum wage earners in our country feel like they’re working harder than ever while seeing their paychecks count for less and less.

This is not an illusion. Since 1968, the real value of the minimum wage has fallen by 50%, while labor productivity more than doubled.

It’s gotten so bad that a full-time minimum wage employee with a family of three earns 21% below the Federal poverty line. Sam, no one who works full time should live in poverty.

That’s why Senator Bernie Sanders and I introduced the Pay Workers a Living Wage Act to raise the Federal Minimum Wage from $7.25 to $15.
Employees of the wealthiest companies in the world should not have to choose between paying their bills and feeding their children. It is immoral and un-American.

By raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour over the next several years, the Pay Workers a Living Wage Act would provide much needed relief for 53 million Americans.
