Support The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013!

Normally, I'm not one to weigh in on these things, but for all you hospitality and tipped employees out there, this is a must!  Call your congresspeople and tell them you support the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013 and that they should too.

The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013, introduced yesterday by Senators Tom Harkin (Iowa) and George Miller (California), would not only increase the national minimum wage level to $10.10/hour by 2015, it would tie the rate to inflation starting in 2016. It would also increase the minimum wage for tipped workers from $2.13/hour to 70% of the minimum wage.
