Minimum wage debate continues in Washington; GCP members can voice their opinion
In response to President Obama’s proposal to increase the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, the United States Senate has begun to discuss the issue. Although it is possible that the Democrat-controlled Senate will take action on the matter after Easter break, it is unlikely that the House of Representatives, controlled by Republicans, will consider it any time soon.
GCP members are encouraged to let us know how they feel about this issue. By taking 10 minutes to participate in this survey, members can provide important insight, which will be relayed to the Government Affairs Council. Click here to watch our video.
