HEADLINES FEBRUARY 13, 2014

...A recent study from the Center for Economic and Policy Research says that if the minimum wage were kept in line with productivity gains since 1968, it would now be more than double the $10.10 amount, at $21.72. In a shift, Obama also announced the new wage increase will no longer exclude workers with disabilities. Advocates were initially told the executive order would not apply to disabled workers employed through a special program that pays them sub-minimum wages. The decision prompted an outcry that apparently led the White House to reverse course. In his remarks on Wednesday, Obama said the principle of being paid a fair wage "applies to all of us."
