God Says: Vote for the Minimum Wage

At the launch of the “Let Justice Roll Living Wage Campaign” yesterday, Sen. Teddy Kennedy (D.-Mass.) said to believe in God is to believe in the raising the minimum wage. The operation, which is said to have more than 45 million constituents, believes Jesus would call the debate is a “justice issue.”

Kennedy agreed: “Whether we reward work, whether we have respect for individuals that work hard and play by the rules, whether we are going to follow the great teachings of the Beatitudes, which inspire so many of us in terms of our responsibilities to our fellow human beings and if we believe in those fundamental tenants of the Judeo-Christian ethic we cannot fail but to believe that the minimum wage must be a livable wage for all our fellow citizen.”
