Norcross Reacts to CBO Report on the Raise the Wage Act

“I’ve worked for minimum wage and I was once a young single dad raising my son and having to balance work, family life and a checkbook. Back then it was hard. Today, for far too many Americans, it’s nearly impossible.

Today’s CBO report confirms that when people finally receive $15 an hour, they’ll spend more, become less reliant on government assistance and give our economy a needed boost – just like past federal minimum wage increases where families were lifted up and unemployment went down."
