Sen. Sherrod Brown speaks for raising the minimum wage

More info:

Sherrod Brown says raising the federal minimum wage will be a ''tough sell'' on Capitol Hill with special interest groups against it, but the U.S. senator is going to ''make the fight'' to see an increase from the $7.25 an hour it's at now.

The Democrat on Monday brought his message in the push to raise the minimum wage above $10 an hour to Boardman at the Yankee Kitchen, where he urged for the passage of a bill that will incrementally raise the rate over the next two years.

The Fair Minimum Wage Act, of which Brown is a co-sponsor, would increase the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour by 2015 in three 95-cent steps and also provide for automatic yearly increases tied to changes in the cost of living.

1. That still seems pretty stingy. Raising the minimum wage substantially would be the best "stimulus"


for the economy too. It should have been done at the start of this depression.
