INCREASE USA PAY FOR LABOR DAY

Idea

On this Labor Day, lets all take a moment to remember the workers who fought and died for better treatment , then lets address the largest labor issue facing our country on this holiday, which is the minimum wage. Let us all collectively demand that our Congressional representatives make this a top priority.

The 2008 financial crisis forced our national job market into a financial state of confusion, but some economists believe those days may be behind us.

Since 2009, hourly rates have increased at an annual rate of 2 percent, but when corrected for inflation these wage increases quickly disappear.
