Minimum Wage Day

by admin on 8th-March-2018


In a nation whose president claims, “Everyone will be so tired of winning,” March 1 was Equal Pay Day—marking the number of additional days into the new year a minimum-wage worker had to work just to earn the same amount he/she did in 2009. According to the Center for American Progress, “in 2018, a worker earning $7.25 per hour needs an extra 41 working days—more than eight weeks—just to take home the same pay as he/she did in a single year when the federal minimum wage was last increased. Until congress acts to raise the national minimum wage, employees will have to labor longer and longer each year to reach the Minimum Wage Workers’ Equal Pay Day.
