Organizing for Action, also known as @BarackObama, has turned its laser-like focus back to a federal minimum wage, which the president would like to raise to $10.10 an hour, in part to ensure that all workers earn a “living wage.” OFA’s own map, however, shows that a $10.10 minimum wage nationwide would still leave workers in cities like New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C., well below that living wage.
You know, looking at this, one might get the impression that a one-size-fits-all approach might not be the best solution. @BarackObama

Not convinced yet? Then check out this compelling chart, knowing what will happen when those in more expensive cities still can’t earn a “living wage.”

Where are those extra billions going to come from?
Are they still "American workers" receiving wages after they have been fired by the company to recoup the $51 billion in > costs? @CuffyMeh
