    encourage the White House to take this issue "on the road."

    It will be tough to get passed, unless the President is willing to put political capital into getting it done.  Which, IMHO, can best be done by getting union support behind him, and staying on the road talking about this issues (rallies, townhalls, etc.)

    What I do know is that folks in the red states DO WANT this, regardless of what Republican Party elites say.  

    So it's a win-win issue. We've just got to spur on the Dem establishment, especially the conservadems.

    So, I hope to see support for this initiative in a real big way!

      There are CEOs of companies that understand paying your employees a fair wage doesn't hurt your bottom line. Enlist them to counteract the argument that a minimum wage increase is a job killer
