The federal minimum wage is too low. People can't live on it, I know I can't. I have created a petition to the white house to do what Obama promised to do in 2008. Do you guys know how I can get the 150 signatures required to get published and kinda in turn the 25,000 to get a guaranteed response by the white house? I only have 11 right now and I am kind of losing hope.

If you want to take a look at it, the link is wh.gov/X999

If you think the prices will be passed on to the consumer, should we lower the minimum wage so corporate America can sell you more stuff?

If people can't live on the minimum wage why are there any left alive for employers to hire?

in the mean time you can call your congressmen and tell them to support the "Catching up to 1968" Act which would increase minimum wage to 10 dollars an hour. There are only a few sponsors so far.

Also there are several petitions online already pushing for minimum wage increase with more signatures. But you can't have too many petitions!

Please keep fighting for this cause! It is very important!

Until you get the currency back under the control of the people and not the globalists, raising the minimum wage isnt going to do too much delay the inevitable.

But it would be nice in the meantime, yes.

Then the businesses tack it onto prices, passing it on to the consumer. Now you're back to square one, what now? We need price controls and removal of the Federal Reserve or nothing will improve.

Post to social media - twitter - facebook - etc. Place the link to your article or petition in these posts. You will reach a wider audience - ask them to share circulate forward the article or petition. There should be a minimum living wage - not a minimum wage - huge difference.

Thank you. Anyone have any ideas for this to go viral?
