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.

 Urgent: Should Obamacare Be Repealed? Vote Here Now!
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
