Today I went up to Capitol Hill, on behalf of the president, to join Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. George Miller in supporting an increase in the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.Even though we won’t recognize the holiday until Monday, today is actually Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 85th birthday. And in championing this cause, we are carrying forward his legacy.
