Obama To Push For Minimum Wage Increase

-

The federal minimum wage takes center stage today in Washington.

President Obama, fresh off his week-long trip to Asia, will push for an increase from $7.25 to $10.10.

Democrats appear to be making this an election-year issue, while conceding they probably don't have the votes.

A long-shot procedural vote is scheduled in the Senate today.

Republicans have come out against the measure.
