Mack: Why we need a $15 federal minimum wage

HCMI member and certified nursing assistant, Carrie Mack, pens editorial to Lansing State Journal calling for Congress to pass a federal $15 minimum wage bill.

“There’s nowhere in the country where you can afford a two-bedroom apartment on anything close to the $7.25 federal minimum, including in Michigan. And there’s nowhere, in any state, where a single parent like me can raise a child on less than $15 an hour,” said Mack.
