Norcross On Raise The Wage Act: “You Play By The Rules, You Work Hard, You Are Supposed To Be Able To Make It”
“Finally, after 11 years, we will have a vote to raise the minimum wage. This is America. You play by the rules, you work hard, you are supposed to be able to make it. But that’s not the way it is,” Norcross said. “Less than two years ago, our colleagues on the other side of the aisle made sure that the top 1% got their raise as they’re stepping on the American worker. Today’s the day that we set the record straight and give opportunity to those who need it the most.” Norcross invoked Henry Ford, who famously paid his workers the highest wages in the automotive industry at the time and said that the act would “give a raise to the people who need it most to survive”.
