The President, who proposed upping the minimum wage to $10.10 during his January 2014 State of the Union address, has also taken his fight on the road, talking about raising wages at every opportunity he can -- and citing examples of businesses who have decided to pay their workers a fair, livable wage.
Recently, during a speech at Central Connecticut State University, President Obama named several companies committed to upping employee wages, saying "it's good busines to do right by your workers. Some of the companies mentioned? Costco, the Gap, and Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor Restaurant. In his talk, the President said that Jaxson's is "an ice cream parlor that's been in business since 1956" and that the restaurant will "lift workers' wages to at least $10.10 without cutting back on hiring."
