Greg Abbott: Against Raising Minimum Wage
Democratic candidate for Governor Wendy Davis—who wants to raise the minimum wage to $10—gets what Republican candidate Greg Abbott doesn’t: All Texans deserve to make a living wage.
By opposing a minimum wage increase, Greg Abbott is choosing to:
· prevent 2,865,000 hardworking Texans from getting a pay raise
· preserve taxpayer subsidies to low-wage big business and keep over 300,000 Texans on food stamps
· turn his back on more than 1.8 million Texas children who have at least one parent whose income would go up by raising the minimum wage
It's time to raise the minimum wage. Texas needs new leadership.
