Victory!  Universal Living Wage Victory!

Travis County the home of the Texas State Capitol has endorsed the Universal 
Living Wage!  By a margin of four to one, the Travis County Commissioners, 
led by County Judge Sam Biscoe, cast a historic vote on Tuesday, July 9th 
2002 when it became the first county in the United States to endorse the 
campaign for income equity.

The goal of the campaign is to fix the federal minimum wage and ensure that 
anyone working a forty hour week will be paid a minimum wage that will allow 
them to afford basic rental housing.  Visit www.UniversalLivingWage.org.  See
