Of course, there are varying opinions on whether that's a good idea.

 

Conservatives think raising the minimum wage would hurt the economy while it's still recovering.

 

But the Executive Director of the Oregon Center for Public Policy, Chuck Sheketoff supports the President's efforts.

 

"The President is right about the income inequality being a defining issue.  It's important and needs to be addressed.  I'm pleased he's going to take some action on that because congress is refusing to act.  But he ought to continue pushing congress to raise the minimum wage nation wide."

 

President Obama is throwing his support behind Congressional Democrat's propsaol to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour.

 

The federal minimum wage set in 2009 is currently $7.25 an hour.
