CCUSA, USCCB urge Congress to support just wages

July 28, 2015

Today, CCUSA’s President, Sister Donna Markham, and Archbishop Thomas Wenski, Chair of the USCCB Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, wrote jointly to Congress to lift up the struggles of low-wage workers and their families. They stressed in their letter that “Protecting low-wage workers and promoting their ability to form and nurture families are shared responsibilities and critical to building a more equitable society. One way Congress can contribute to this shared work of promoting the common good is by ensuring the federal minimum wage promotes family formation and stability.”
