I spent this morning in the U.S. Capitol Building as part of a group of bloggers invited to celebrate the enaction of the minimum wage hike alongside the Democratic leadership. In short interviews with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, as well as with George Miller, Barney Frank, Hilda Solis, and Sheila Jackson-Lee, we talked about everything from wage inequality, to affordable housing, to systemic discrimination against working women, to Iraq. My dispatches are at TAPPED — check out the links below.
Minimum Wage Day.
Come by later to see Pelosi’s comments on how Democrats can move forward on Iraq. I’m writing them up now.
