YELLEN: "Right now we have millions of American workers who are putting their lives on the line to keep their communities functioning. And sometimes even working multiple jobs, aren't earning enough to put food on the table and a roof over their heads. And they are suffering in countless ways, especially during this pandemic. And really struggling to get by and raising the minimum wage would really help many of those workers."
