A Just Minimum Wage. A Librarian at Every Table. No. 310.

A new report commissioned by the American Friends Service Committee and the National Council of Churches calls on Congress to raise the minimum wage. A Just Minimum Wage: Good for Workers, Business and Our Future, by Holly Sklar and the Rev. Dr. Paul H. Sherry.
The report emphasizes that "A job should keep you out of poverty, not keep you in it... Raising the minimum wage is a moral imperative for the very soul of our nation."
