Obama & Minimum Wage

-
(NBC News)  President Obama vowed to continue his push for a higher minimum wage Wednesday after Senate Republicans blocked a vote on the issue.

They argue raising the minimum wage from $7.25 per hour to $10.10 would hurt employment.

"It could cost up to million American jobs," said Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

After the vote the President spoke briefly at the White House saying "it's a very simple issue. Either you're in favor of raising wages for hard-working Americans or you're not."
