"YOU CAN'T CURE A MORAL PROBLEM BY IGNORING IT." – President Harry S. Truman
“IS THIS AMERICA? THEY BEAT POLICE OFFICERS WITH BLUE LIVES MATTER FLAGS. THEY FOUGHT US. THEY HAD CONFEDERATE FLAGS IN THE US CAPITOL. THEY STORMED THE SPEAKER'S OFFICE..THEY WERE TRYING TO ASSASSINATE THE VICE PRESIDENT, IN THE CAPITOL.” Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn to ABC
This is how President Harry Truman reacted to a reckless, lying demagogue. Unsent telegram from Truman to Joe McCarthy, 1950:
On this day in 1949, President Harry Truman nearly doubled the federal minimum wage from 40 cents an hour to 75 cents. Our current federal minimum wage of $7.25 was set way back in 2009 and hasn’t increased since. We need a $15 minimum wage to be the national floor—now.

This week in 1949, President Harry Truman nearly doubled the federal minimum wage from 40 cents an hour to 75 cents. Our current federal minimum wage of $7.25 was set back in 2009 and hasn’t increased with the cost of living. It’s time to raise the wage.
