President Obama Calls for Raise in Minimum Wage

Posted: Updated:

President Barack Obama says it's time to give Americans a raise.
    
Obama is at a Costco warehouse in Maryland Wednesday to promote higher minimum wages the morning after announcing a new executive order in his State of the Union address. Obama's action will raise the minimum wage for new federal contract workers to $10.10.
    
Obama says no one who works fulltime should ever have to raise a child in poverty. He says he's choosing to make 2014 a year of action because too many Americans are struggling just to get by.
    
Obama is calling on Congress to raise the federal minimum wage for all workers to $10.10. He says raising the rate doesn't require new federal spending and it would help Americans make ends meet.
