Minimum Wage and Income Inequality
The minimum wage, living wages, and other employee compensation laws are hot topics from the White House to our cities, towns and villages. These laws have a broad impact on our communities; from low income families struggling to survive, to a middle class looking for greater opportunity, to main street businesses trying to keep the lights on, to labor organizations advocating for their members, to nationwide industries providing meaningful employment. How can we work together to re-grow the middle class in America, build strong cities, and ensure thriving local economies? DMO understands that conversation and cooperation are the only ways to build a fair system that represents all hard working Americans, whether they are employees or job creators.
