LC Commissioners urging legislators to raise Minimum Wage to $10.10 per hour

March 31, 2014: LC Commissioners Pete Gerken, Carol Contrada, and Tina Skeldon Wozniak hosted a press conference urging the Ohio Legislature and the US Senate to take the actions necessary to raise the state and federal minimum wage from $7.95 per hour to $10.10 per hour.

Comm. Gerken began the conference at 10:10 a.m. and was joined by Toledo City Councilwoman Lindsay Webb, Greater Northwest Ohio AFL-CIO Executive Secretary-Treasurer George Tucker, FLOC President Baldemar Velásquez, Center of Hope Community Baptist Church Reverend Donald L. Perryman, EOPA CEO Stanley Lowe, and other leaders.     

According to the commissioners: “The Lucas County Board of Commissioners will urge the legislative bodies to pass Ohio House Bill 502 and the Fair Minimum Wage Act to raise the state and federal minimum wage for nearly one million Ohio workers—86 percent of whom are 20 years old or older and 82 percent work more than 20 hours per week. “Raising the minimum wage will allow more Ohioans with income to spend on the basics they need—leading to additional dollars spent with Ohio’s local businesses, a strengthened local economy, and a strengthened Ohio tax base.”
