BOSTON (WWLP) - Over the past 40 years, the minimum wage has not kept up with inflation. It’s one of the reasons more than one hundred union members and minimum wage workers are fighting for fair wages and benefits. They marched through Beacon Hill Thursday in support of legislation that would increase the minimum wage from $8/hour to $11/hour by 2015.
"Workplace flexibility isn’t just a women’s issue. It’s an issue that affects the well-being of our families and the success of our businesses. It affects the strength of our economy – whether we’ll create the workplaces and jobs of the future that we need to compete in today’s global economy."
- President Barak Obama
