Obama Repeats Call To Stop Economic Inequality

(West Mifflin, PA) -- President Obama continued to call attention to economic inequality. Continuing a post-State of the Union trek at a steel mill in Pennsylvania, Obama touted a steady recovery from the deep recession.
However, he noted that average workers' salaries have not gone up. Obama also noted a resurgence in the American steel industry and said the U.S. is poised for robust economic growth. He repeated a call for a hike in the national minimum wage and argued that no fulltime worker should have to "raise a family in poverty."
