President Obama: If You Work Hard, It Should Pay Off

Yesterday, the President spoke to a crowd filled with students about how raising the minimum wage will expand opportunity for all Americans, young and old.

Here's what President Obama had to say:

Nobody who works full-time should ever have to raise a family in poverty. That violates a basic sense of who we are. And that's why it's time to give America a raise... What every American wants is a paycheck that lets them support their families, know a little economic security, pass down some hope and optimism to their kids. And that's worth fighting for.

That's why it's time to raise the wage. Learn more and, if you agree, add your name.
