Higher minimum wage is necessary

Do you remember working a part-time job when you were in high school?

That seemed like a lot of money because it was just for you — no bills, no responsibility!

Well, fast forward to 2013. Minimum wage in Las Vegas is $8.25 an hour. Whole families have to live on that salary. Can you imagine raising your family on $8.25 an hour? $10.10 is a start!

Help support raising the minimum wage to $10.10. You will sleep better at night.
