Increase Of The Federal Minimum Wage
DECEMBER 31, 2022 -
The Federal Minimum Wage has increased exponentially, marking the first time the minimum wage has changed in over 80 years, remaining 9.25 since 1942. President McCallum took a historic step in raising the new federal minimum wage to 12.50 which is a 29% increase from the 9.25 Jesstopians were making in terms of the Minimum wage across the country. We have made incredible strides to ensure that Jesstopians are able to live comfortably. We have so much work left to do, but we have two years left and I will get as much as I can done before the end of my Presidency.
OCTOBER 31, 2022 -
I would just like to wish everyone a very Happy Halloween. As we begin trick or treating season, we ask that parents, aunts, grandparents, and other guardians ensure that all children accompany children under the age of 10, and ensure they check all candy that is going to be consumed. As of October 30, 2022, all States within the United States Of Jesstopia have established plans to increase law enforcement patrols in neighborhoods across the country. As trick-or-treaters begin heading out the door, ensure that a clear and decisive plan is established for meeting points to ensure no child gets lost or kidnapped.
As always, I wish you all a very happy and safe Halloween and enjoy ALL the candy.
President Of The United States Of Jesstopia
