Rick Santorum and Republican Friends Kinda, Sorta Endorse Raising the Minimum Wage

May 7, 2014

Several prominent Republicans have made recent statements that seem to suggest they support some form of minimum wage increase. President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats have been fighting for legislation that would increase the national minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, and several states and cities have passed their own increases, deciding not to wait for Congress to move. While we appreciate them pushing back against their fellow Republicans who oppose any minimum wage at all or any increase in the minimum wage, now we need them to come out in support of an increase of the federal minimum wage to $10.10.
