John Edwards has a petition going to ask the Senate to raise the minimum wage - no strings attached. "It's a long overdue change that will immediately help over 13 million people, many living at or below the edge of poverty. But it will only happen if you speak up," Edwards wrote. "Last week, the Senate Republicans filibustered a clean version of the proposal, and now they're trying to force Democrats to either pass billions of dollars more in corporate tax breaks or give up raising the minimum wage."
Don't let them get away with this cynical ploy. Sign the petition now.
