Do you support raising the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10? <More Info>
Fast-food workers in about 100 cities, including Pittsburgh, plan to walk off the job today in their push for higher pay. These strikes are intended to build on a campaign that began about a year ago to call attention to the difficulties of living on the $7.25 an hour minimum wage. President Obama said he would back a Senate measure to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10.
Do you believe conservation of natural habitats and water resources should be a higher priority than shale gas development, even if that would result in higher energy costs?
