It should come as no surprise to any worker that the rich are getting richer, while the majority of people around the world are getting poorer.

The low-wage spark

By January 25, 2014

The struggle to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $15 an hour, which is being embraced not only by many unions but by a wide range of popular and community-based organizations, is a struggle to reverse the decades-long trend in the United States to impoverish the working class. This is especially so where […]
