Washington DC – Business owners applauded the planned introduction today of new legislation to raise the federal minimum wage, which has been stuck since 2009 at $7.25 an hour – just $15,080 a year for fulltime work. Business for a Fair Minimum Wage is launching a new sign-on statement for business owners and executives supporting a gradual increase to $12 by 2020 to benefit business and the economy.
