Billionaire Koch Brothers Oppose Increasing the Minimum Wage

From President Brad Woodhouse:

Not exactly a newsflash – but here it is – from the Koch funded AFP – a note to Senators urging a vote against increasing the minimum wage. Two dudes worth a combined over $80 billion opposing an increase in the minimum wage for people who work fulltime but still live in poverty. Unbelievable.

 

On behalf of more than two million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I write to urge you to vote NO on S. 2223, increasing the minimum wage to from $7.25 to $10.10. This is a misguided policy that will mean fewer jobs in this sluggish economy.

I urge you to vote NO on FINAL PASSAGE on S. 2223, increasing the federal minimum wage. Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.
