Don't Let Republicans Abolish the Minimum Wage!
Democrats have always believed in every hard-working American's right to earn enough money to support themselves and their families. That's why, in 1938, the Democratic-controlled Congress passed and President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Fair Labor Standards Act -- the United States' first federal minimum wage law.
But Republican Senate candidates around the country, some of whom are multi-millionaires, have said that the minimum wage should be lowered, or even eliminated. Republican policies have already caused a great recession; now Republicans want to turn back the clock to the Great Depression.
Americans can't afford the GOP's dangerous ideas. Sign this petition urging your senators to defend the minimum wage from Republican attacks.

Dear Decision Maker,
I stand with the DSCC in support of the minimum wage, and I call on Republicans to stop trying to lower or eliminate it. Americans work hard, and we deserve to be paid fairly.
