After more than a decade with no increase in the federal minimum wage – and more than the thirty years with no increase to the tipped minimum wage – the longest period in U.S. history – there is now no place in America where a full-time worker making the federal minimum wage can afford rent, food, and other essentials.

As a result, millions of our nation’s workers – including many of our celebrated essential workers – are working full-time jobs but are still struggling to make ends meet. One in nine U.S. workers is paid wages that leave them in poverty, even when working full time and year-round.

The Raise the Wage Act will give millions of Americans a long-overdue raise and lift struggling workers and their families out of poverty.
