90% of female tipped workers have experienced sexual harassment. Relying on the approval of strangers just to eke out a living leaves millions of women vulnerable - but at $2.13/hr, they're forced into silence. The Act could end it.

While the cost of education, healthcare, housing, and consumer goods continue to rise, the minimum wage hasn’t budged in ten years and is losing value due to inflation. Congress must pass the Act to boost the incomes of millions of low-wage workers.
