President Obama will announced plans to use his executive authority to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour for federal contract workers during the State of the Union address, the White House said Tuesday.
Federal workers like janitors, construction workers and dishwashers hired under new federal contracts would benefit from the new order, which the White House calls an example of how the president can “lead by example.”
“Boosting wages will lower turnover and increase morale, and will lead to higher productivity overall,” the White House said in a statement. “Raising wages for those at the bottom will improve the quality and efficiency of services provided to the government.”
