Cut poverty in half by paying a living wage. End the subsidies to businesses that pay poverty wages.
To be delivered to: The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama
Paying a living wage would solve many problems in our country. Over half of the poor in this country work, yet they need government services such as food stamps and Medicaid. Turn these folks into taxpayers rather than people needing our tax dollars. Stop the subsidies to business that pay poverty wages. Give work dignity by paying people a fair and just wage. We all do better when everyone is doing better.
