President Obama said something I'm pretty proud of in last night's State of the Union:
"Opportunity is who we are. And the defining project of our generation is to restore that promise."
Some people in Washington have spent their entire careers turning their backs on folks asking for a fair shot. Our movement is defined by fighting for the principle that anyone who works hard and plays by the rules has the opportunity to succeed.
The President made it clear last night he isn't waiting for Congress -- he's doing everything in his power to work toward that goal right now. Yesterday, he took action to raise the minimum wage for federal contract workers with new contracts to $10.10 an hour, a step that will directly help thousands of Americans -- folks like janitors, cafeteria workers, and cashiers.
It's our turn to fight for hard-working Americans who deserve a raise.
If you agree that it's time to raise the minimum wage, add your name right now:
Last night, the President showed he's willing to walk the walk. When it comes to fighting for what you believe in, I hope you're ready to do the same.
