President Obama has pushing the policy, which creates  more jobs and raises the wage for the full-time job worker.  Obama is asking Congress to pass the law to raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour, and he said that the raise of minimum wage will benefit 28 million Americans. The raise of the minimum wage would not just benefit the new graduate for their first job,  but it also benefits the full-time low wage workers; especially women. He wants to make sure the women get paid equally, and make it easier for  young people like students to pay off their student loan.  The extra money that they make will help their family and the local business as well. Unfortunately,  the Congress has not passed the law and not raised the national minimum wage for seven years. President Obama believes that nobody work hard at full-time job should raise children in poverty in the America.

President Obama has the executive power to recommend laws to Congress. Although he has the power to recommend the laws, the President Obama cannot write the laws.  He can only propose it, and the members of Congress must approve it for him. When both the House of Representatives and the Senate in the Congress approve the laws, they write the laws and send them back to the President Obama.  If President Obama agrees with the law, he signs it and the law becomes constitutional. On the other hand,  if the President Obama does not like the bill, he has the power to veto and send it back to Congress unsigned with some reasons. When the President vetoes a bill, it will never become a law unless Congress override a veto. In order to do this,  two third of both the House of Representatives and the Senate must vote against the President.

    We the people, as hard workers had waited for this law for years. I think the government should at least give an obligatory raise on jobs. people that barely make it to put their food on their tables believe in president Obama to convince the congress about this law. I hope they will accept it so I could have a raise in my job.
