(Scenes from the Indy Tour Stop at Monument Square on Monday, April 28, 2014)
Citing research from M-I-T, the living wage in the state's capitol city is a little over $18,000 and if full-time Hoosier workers made $10.10 an hour, they would earn a little over $21,000 a year. The 20-state bus tour is to encourage local small business owners, anti-poverty advocates and low-wage earners to call on that state's member of congress to raise the minimum wage to 10-dollars-ten-cents an hour, according to the website.
