Elizabeth Warren: Raising The Minimum Wage Is 'The Least We Can Do'

[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/28/elizabeth-warren-minimum-wage_n_4681412.html|Elizabeth Warren: Raising The Minimum Wage Is 'The Least We Can Do' ]Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) stopped by HuffPost Live ahead of President Barack Obama's 2014 State of the Union address, telling host Zach Carter she believes raising the minimum wage is necessary.

"Come on. Minimum wage, it's the least we can do," Warren said.

Warren said she wants to see Obama "do what he can," but she also hopes he'll push Congress to raise the minimum wage in his speech Tuesday night.

An administration official told The Huffington Post Obama will announce during Tuesday night's address that he's raising the minimum wage for workers under federal contracts to $10.10 per hour.
