A key victory by ACORN and Floridians for All Tuesday:
ACORN and Floridians for All won a raise for working families in Florida on November 2nd, by the overwhelming margin of 72% -- 28%. Members all over the state worked hard in order to get Amendment 5 on the ballot, register voters and then get out the vote on election day. By raising the minimum wage to $6.15 (with subsequent increases due to indexing), a full time worker will earn an additional $2,000 in wages, enough to make a significant difference in the lives of low-income workers and moving many out of poverty.
