Male Announcer [Twangy Texas Music]: When the national minimum wage was raised to $5.15 and hour, Bush did nothing and kept the Texas minimum wage at $3.35.

Six times the legislature tried to raise the minimum wage and Bush's inaction helped kill it.

Now Bush says he'd allow states to set a minimum wage lower than the federal standard.

[Upbeat Music] Al Gore's Plan:

Make sure that our current prosperity enriches not just a few but all families.

Increase the minimum wage,

Invest in education,

Middle class tax cuts,

And a secure retirement.
