  • SOTU & IFAM: Obama's Mentions of Immigration, Minimum Wage, and SNAP | Ignatian Solidarity Network
    THE MINIMUM WAGE In the year since I asked this Congress to raise the minimum wage five states have passed laws to raise theirs Many businesses have done it on their own Nick Chute is here today with his boss John Soranno John s an owner of Punch Pizza in Minneapolis and Nick helps make the dough Laughter Only now he makes more of it Laughter John just gave his employees a raise to 10 bucks an hour and that s a decision that has eased their financial stress and boosted their morale Tonight I ask more of America s business leaders to follow John s lead Do what you can to raise your employees wages Applause It s good for the economy it s good for America Sustained applause To every mayor governor state legislator in America I say you don t have to wait for Congress to act Americans will support you if you take this on And as a chief executive I intend to lead by example Profitable corporations like Costco see higher wages as the smart way to boost productivity and reduce turnover We should too In the coming weeks I will issue an executive order requiring federal contractors to pay their federally funded employees a fair wage of at least 10 10 an hour because if you cook cheers applause our troops meals or wash their dishes you should not have to live in poverty Sustained applause Of course to reach millions more Congress does need to get on board Today the federal minimum wage is worth about twenty percent less than it was when Ronald Reagan first stood here And Tom Harkin and George Miller have a bill to fix that by lifting the minimum wage to 10 10 It s easy to remember 10 10 This will help families It will give businesses customers with more money to spend It does not involve any new bureaucratic program So join the rest of the country Say yes Give America a raise Cheers applause Give em a raise ON SNAP While the President made no direct mentions of SNAP and or the Farm Bill last night the House passed the Farm Bill today by a vote of 251 to 166 The Senate is expected to take up the bill later this week While the bill contains some positive aspects anti hunger and poverty groups find the 8 6 billion cut to the SNAP program deeply troubling According to the Food Research Action Center the bill will cut SNAP benefits to an estimated 850 000 households by an average of 90 month Rev David Beckmann president of Bread for the World asserted While there are some positive aspects of the Farm Bill such as food aid reform provisions we are disappointed with the 8 6 billion cut to SNAP Any cut to SNAP is harmful to America s struggling families especially at this time when hunger in the U S A is at an all time
