Kennedy Amendment

Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-MA) announced to the Senate floor a bill to progressivly raise the minimum wage over two years to $7.25, which would be the first raise in 9 years.

Here is a word from Ted himself at Think Progress:
Help Raise the Minimum Wage

I urge everyone to support this bill for it is an injustice to be paying such unfair wages to our hardworking workers. Hopfully the Labor movement is not dead.
