Increasing the minimum wage will not solve systemic poverty. The market will adjust the cost of living to the higher baseline, exacerbating income inequality as more revenue is diverted to the higher classes.

Equal work demands equal pay. If two people perform the same job at the same standard and the same level of experience and education, they should earn the same.

Let’s give America a raise now and every year in the future. The U.S. minimum wage is $7.25 an hour and it hasn’t been raised in more than a decade. Washington has raised the minimum wage only 7 times in my lifetime, even though it was increased 17 times in the 34 years prior. Our current national minimum wage denies hundreds of thousands of hard-working Louisianaians a livable wage, making it nearly impossible for them to feed their families and pay their bills. It’s past time to take the politics out of people’s pockets and give working families the pay raise they deserve.  We know the cost of living is higher in New York than New Orleans, but it shouldn’t take DC a decade to find a solution. I propose an immediate increase in the federal minimum wage that automatically adjusts to local economic conditions every year. This will ensure hard working Louisianaians get a raise now that keeps pace with the cost of living, rather than being bogged down by politics.
