Fwd: Could You Survive?




Brave New Films
Dear Friend --

FACT: In January 2014, 13 states raised their minimum wage; since then these states added more jobs and have lower unemployment rates than the 36 states that did not raise the minimum wage.

FACT: The U.S. Government could save $7 billion dollars if companies just paid employees a higher minimum wage.*  

FACT: Federal minimum wage is $7.25 – and some states actually have a lower state wage of $6.25 an hour.

How can anyone, alone or with a family, survive on minimum wage?

FACT: They can't.

But together we are fighting to change this. In two weeks, states like Arkansas, Alaska, South Dakota, Nebraska and cities like Eureka and Oakland are casting their votes to raise the wage. And Brave New Films is continuing to expose the Koch brothers' fight against increasing the minimum wage.

Join the fight today by sharing these videos in solidarity with all who agree that working people should not live in poverty.

Share this because you believe that hard working families deserve to thrive, not barely survive.    


Thank you for your action.
Robert Greenwald, President
Brave New Films
