Raise the Minimum Wage

image1

For the Past 30 years, almost all income gains have been captured by the richest few.  The progress towards prosperity that our mothers and grandfathers experienced has ground to a halt.

I want to increase the Georgia minimum wage to $12 an hour.

The minimum wage hasn’t even kept up with inflation.  The grass roots of both parties (80% of Americans including 58% of registered Republicans) support increasing the minimum wage.   The minimum wage transcends region: rural crop pickers, suburban retail workers and urban service workers are all in the same boat.  If the Republicans refuse to give their own struggling constituents a raise, I’ll embarrass them and Georgians of all races and regions can unite to defeat them.
