Raise the minimum wage - A report released by the IUPRA at the University of Texas at Austin shows raising the minimum wage will not only help the U.S. economy, it will also lift millions of the lowest-wage workers out of poverty. According to the Economic Policy Institute, to rise above the poverty threshold, a single mother raising two children and working full time would need to earn $17.50 to $31.60 an hour.

A Liberty with two dates on its tablet: July 4, 1776 (like the New York one) and July 14, 1789, the day of the storming of the Bastille, near the Grenelle Bridge in Paris, France - Bizarre Replicas of the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower
#TriviaTuesday It has July 14th, 1789 on her tablet, which is #BastilleDay in #France. Bon #14julliet!
Statue of Liberty on the Île aux Cygnes, River Seine in Paris. Given to the city in 1889, it faces southwest, downriver along the Seine.
I do a daily poem at http://newsprintpoetry2012.blogspot.com This picture of the Statue of Liberty illustrates my poem for 9/30/12 entitled "Lady Liberty."
Île aux Cygnes - One of the replicas of the Statue of Liberty. She is at the far end of the island
Statue of Liberty in Paris - She's much smaller than her siste in America, but just as beautiful...
There are 100s of replicas of the Statue of Liberty around the world but possibly the most famous is the one on the Seine in Paris. It had been made by Bartholdi, the sculptor of the full size version in NYC as a study before he made the full size version and is only 37 feet tall. It sits on a small man made island near Notre Dame and can only be seen by boat. It has the date of the storming of the Bastille on the tablet as well as the US date of Independence. It's quite a thing to see actually.

We need to make sure that students who are parents have the support they need to both take care of their children AND go to school. According to IWPR, women students of color are very likely to have children...which means the cost of attending college just gets higher for them. #GetSmart #studentparents
On-campus child care is already limited for the 1 in 4 college students with kids, and access is declining #WEmatter - IWP Research

Despite the booming population of student parents, campus child care does not meet demand and is even declining. We need better student support systems!
