Legislative Status of the ULW

=20

            For the second time* in our long journey to permanently fix =
the federal minimum wage and achieve a Universal Wage, a great =
legislative hero, Congresswoman Julia Carson (D-7th, IN) died before we =
could perfect legislative language on our bill.  She was a great =
champion of the people and will be deeply missed.  Our journey =
continues.

            House the Homeless, Inc. has again written to Philip =
Mangano, Executive Director of the Interagency Council on Homelessness, =

promote the idea that if businesses paid fair, living wages we could =
