President Biden on Tuesday is expected to sign an executive order raising the minimum wage for federal contractors to $15 by March 2022.

At that time, the order will result in a 37-percent raise for federal contractors making the current contracting minimum $10.95, and setting their salary at over double the regular statutory federal minimum wage, which has been stuck at $7.25 since 2009.

The move would affect hundreds of thousands of workers, according to a senior administration official.

    • What do you mean “decent workers”? Even government contractors hire – for example- students for drudge work, liek emptying garbage cans. You expect them to get the same payment as skilled plumbers, electricians and carpenters, computer operators and programmers?
