Vintage Vinyl Co-Owner Honored in Washington
WASHINGTON (KMOX) – The driving force behind Vintage Vinyl’s success on the Delmar Loop will be recognized in Washington D.C.
The White House says Lew Prince will be honored today as one of America’s “Champions of Change.”
Prince, co-founder and co-owner of the iconic St. Louis record store, is being saluted by President Obama for his efforts to raise the minimum wage.
Prince is also a longtime spokesperson for Business for a Fair Minimum Wage, a network of business owners and executives advocating for the business advantages of a fair minimum wage.
He has testified both in the Missouri Legislature and before U.S. Senate committees about the benefits of raising the minimum wage.
Speaking with KMOX’s Hancock & Kelley today, Prince said he thinks the national minimum wage should be $10.50 an hour.
