Bergen County, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/29/2014 -- On the day of historic state of the union address the White House announced that President Obama has plans to issue an executive order that would increase the minimum wage for new federal contract works. The minimum wage would guarantee that no federal worker is paid less than $10.10 an hour. New Jersey resident Anthony Amado is interested to see how this increase would help the economy of New Jersey, which is still recovering from Hurricane Sandy.
President Obama is also trying to increase the nation’s minimum wage, but that legislation is currently stalled in Congress. An increase in the nation’s minimum wage would be a huge move for the country to help people relying on minimum wage for a living.
Even those earning more than minimum wage, recognize the importance of raising the minimum wage. Anthony Amado agrees that everyone should be making a living wage, and that it is up to the government to make sure that happens for everyone.
