For millions of Americans, 2015 just started with good news
In 20 states, a minimum wage increase just took effect.
On January 1st, millions of hard-working Americans got a much-deserved raise, when minimum wage increases went into effect in 20 states. And several big cities and the District of Columbia will join them later this year.
This progress is the result of hard-fought battles. Without the dedicated work of grassroots organizers across the country, we wouldn't be celebrating this news today.
