The President spoke to a crowd of students and invited guests of 1,400 inside the university’s intramural sports building.
"There is a bill before Congress that would boost America's minimum wage to $10.10. It would help lift wages for 28 million Americans, including a million people right here in Michigan," Mr. Obama said. "It would lift millions of people out of poverty right away."
He urged students to use their spring breaks to contact their elected representatives about the minimum wage, and then added, "oh did that happen already? Well I hope you had fun."
The President touched on equal pay for women, the Affordable Care Act, the improving economy, the burden of student loans, and job training in his half-hour remarks.
Buddying up to his listeners, he said, "we've got to make sure everybody's ready with the skills they need; not everybody's going to be lucky enough to be a Wolverine and graduate from Michigan."
