19. There are over 2 million contract workers but not all will get raises

I have read that it only applies to new contracts so anyone working under an old contract wouldn't be eligible for the increase. As the old contracts expire and are replaced, though, the workers should then get an increase. Of course, not all contract workers are making the minimum wage as it stands now, but I'm sure a large percentage are and will look forward to an extra $100 a week in their pay packet.
