Joe Biden raises minimum wage to $15 an hour for federal contractors

We have won a $15 minimum wage for workers at federally contracted companies! Staff at the Guardian report that the Biden administration signed an executive order raising wages for 390,000 low wage workers, nearly half of whom are Black and Hispanic. Sylvia Walker and our many organizing committee leaders at Maximus call centers are pushing the multi-billion dollar company to implement this pay increase immediately. 

We’ve fought hard for fair pay and better working conditions, and we are thankful Biden’s administration has heard our call to action,” Walker said.
