The Job Creators Network launched a major new campaign today called “Fight For $50” which seeks to change the conversation from raising the wage floor to raising the wage ceiling for average workers. The campaign fights for $50,000 a year careers, not a counterproductive $15 an hour minimum wage mandate.
The campaign calls on legislators to protect entry-level jobs where employees can learn the skills necessary to land one of the millions of available middle-skill jobs paying $50,000 or more. That means avoiding activist calls to dramatically raise the entry-level wage that would reduce skill-building job opportunities.
