WASHINGTON – Tomorrow, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will join Senate and House leaders at 11:30 a.m. EST to host a video conference announcing the introduction of the Raise the Wage Act. The legislation would increase the federal minimum wage to $15 in five steps over the next four years, increasing pay for nearly 32 million workers. 

Congress has not increased the federal minimum wage in more than a decade – the longest stretch since it was first established in 1938.  Today, millions of American workers are struggling to make ends meet. The Raise the Wage Act would lift countless struggling workers and families out of poverty and provide economic security throughout the country.

WHO:

  • Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Incoming Chair of Senate Committee on Budget
  • Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Incoming Chair of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions
  • Chairman Robert C. “Bobby” Scott (D-Va.), Chair of House Committee on Education and Labor
  • Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), Chair of Congressional Progressive Caucus
  • Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-Fla.)
  • Fran Marion, Fight for $15 and a Union Leader
  • Mike Draper, Owner of Raygun Clothing and Home Goods

WHAT: A video conference to announce the introduction of the Raise the Wage Act.

WHEN: Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at 11:30 a.m. EST

WHERE: Members of the press can join the event at this link. The event will also be livestreamed on Senator Sanders’ Facebook page here.
