Millions of workers mostly women struggle to make ends meet on minimum wage. At just $7.25 an hour, or roughly $14,500 per year, the current federal minimum wage hasn't been raised in THREE YEARS and is leaving working families in poverty.
The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2012 would gradually raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9.80 per hour, increase the tipped minimum cash wage from $2.13 per hour to 70 percent of the minimum wage, and index the minimum wage to keep pace with inflation. Increasing the minimum wage and tipped minimum wage are key steps toward fair pay for women.
Here are the facts!!!
Women represent nearly two-thirds of minimum wage workers.
A woman working full-time, year round at the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour earns just $15,000 – more than $3,000 below the poverty line for a family of three.
The federal minimum cash wage for tipped workers has been $2.13 per hour for 20 years. Women are nearly two-thirds of workers in tipped occupations. Raising the minimum wage to $9.80 per hour would boost earnings for more than 28 million workers, nearly 55 percent of them women, and help close the wage gap.
