WASHINGTON — The AFL-CIO called out the National Retail Federation for opposing a proposed hike in the federal minimum wage rate to $10.10 from $7.25 an hour in a letter made public on Wednesday.
AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka called the NRF’s opposition “misguided” and urged the association to follow Gap Inc.’s example in supporting a higher wage rate. Trumka expressed his view in a letter to Matthew Shay, president and chief executive officer of the NRF, dated March 20 but released Wednesday.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
