Roseanne BarrHere’s a name I haven’t heard in a while: Roseanne Barr. And wow, she looks great! Here’s the news: She’s working with ACORN & AFL-CIO on a project called Seven Days at Minimum Wage. It’s part of campaign to get minimum wage increases passed in six states: Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, and Ohio. It’s currently $5.15 an hour and hasn’t been raised in 10 years.

These organizations are sponsoring seven days of video blogging on YouTube, beginning Otober 23, for minimum wage workers in six states to personally tell their stories of income-based hardship. Roseanne Barr is the host; talk about pairing the right person with the right cause. There couldn’t have been a better fit.

Here’s a description of the vlog from the release:

7 Days @ Minimum Wage is like YouTube’s Lonely Girl 15 meets T.V.’s “30 Days” for the minimum wage movement. The video blog features new interviews every day for seven days with low wage workers, who share their stories of what life is like on the federal minimum wage of $5.15 an hour.

They are also encouraging bloggers to post their own reactions, comments, and videos of minimum wage stories in their hometown. And of course, voters can make a real difference on election day in November. Don’t forget to check out Seven Days at Minimum Wage on October 23.

Thanks for the tip, Mike.
