Obama took the opportunity to call on Congress to raise the minimum wage for all Americans.

"Right now, there is a bill in front of both the House and the Senate that would boost America’s minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, and lift wages for more than 16 million workers – all without requiring a single dollar in new taxes or spending," he said. "It’s time to pass that bill and give America a raise."
