john kerry fact for the day

"Every time we've passed an increase in the minimum wage, America's done better, notwithstanding those arguments.

When I'm president, the first thing we're going to do is start to raise that minimum wage to $7 an hour and allow people in America to be able to work and get out of poverty for the work that they do.

But it's not limited to minimum wage…you've got to start talking about a living wage that so many mayors are beginning to talk about."
