Santorum's Bill to Raise Minimum Wage Actually a SNEAKY way to Cut pay
Sweatshops Expanded, Overtime Attacked, and State Minimum Wage Laws Undermined
This is as low as it goes, as the GOP fights to expand sub-minimum wage sweatshops across the country. Pennsylvania's Rick Santorum is leading the charge for a GOP bill that would ostensibly raise the minimum wage by $1.10 per hour, but in reality would cut wages for millions of American workers and expand unregulated sweatshops across the country.
As this Economic Policy Institute analysis details, the bill is a trojan horse for assaulting workers rights.
