Biden: Raising Minimum Wage Is Good for Business
 
 
 

Saturday, 29 Mar 2014 09:10 AM

Vice President Joe Biden says raising the federal minimum wage is good for business.

Biden is delivering the White House's weekly radio and Internet address in place of President Barack Obama, who was traveling this week. He's urging Congress to pass Obama's proposed wage hike to $10.10 per hour.

Biden says fair wages generate worker loyalty, leading to higher productivity and less turnover. He says it boosts the economy by generating $19 billion in additional income for the neediest people.

Biden says raising the minimum wage also helps women, who earn less on average than their male counterparts.

In the Republican address, Rep. Jackie Walorski of Indiana is urging Obama to support the VA Management Accountability Act. She says it's a step in the right direction for helping veterans.

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.
