Schumer: Raise Minimum Wage
1/24/2014 (Updated 10:49:41 PM)While the Binghamton School District seems to be trying to keep tax levys low, Senator Charles Schumer is looking for pay increases for his constituents.
After announcing Friday that Lockheed had a good chance for another big government contract--he talked about his support for an increase in the minimum wage.
"I think the minimum wage should be raised. It seems to me, if you work 40 hours a week you should be able to provide some life of dignity and decency to your family," said Sen. Charles Schumer, (D) New York.
The President is expected to speak about income equality and minimum wage next week. Schumer says that although the economy is getting better, real buying power is lower now than in the seventies and eighties.
