PAY THE PEOPLE NOW
Did you know that if the minimum wage in America had increased at the rate of productivity since 1960, it would be $22.50 today?
Instead, it’s just $7.25.
Tens of millions of Americans head to a second or third job because they can’t afford life’s basic needs.
Nowadays everyone is calling nursing assistants and orderlies our heroes and heroines. Did you know their median hourly wage is $14.25? Is $14.25 what you pay heroes and heroines?
Meanwhile, the 400 richest Americans are now worth $3 trillion.
PAY THE PEOPLE NOW believes that Americans ought to be applauded with a living wage instead of empty words.
