10. Yes, in the SOTU. There is a reason people are angry at the GOP. One example:

Women Prepare Their Revenge for Mitch McConnell Voting Against the Minimum Wage 15 Times

Democrats have repeatedly put in bills to raise the minimum wage and the GOP has rejected them. Warren has spoken on it repeatedly, along with other Democrats. And Obama has been asking Congress to raise it since last summer. Then he addressed it in the SOTU, again. He's also been on the road this year asking state legislatures to raise the minimum wage. It's been so needed that some employers have taken matters into their own hands, the good ones, that is. The GOP has obsrructed this for years and PBO did something.
