Thirty religious leaders are gathering Friday morning to urge D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray to sign the Living Wage Act into law.

The bill would require incoming big-box employers in the District to pay their employees at least $12.50 an hour. That's well above the District's minimum wage of $8.25 an hour.

Last week, the D.C. Council passed the bill and, in turn, Walmart announced it wouldn’t go forward with three planned stores in D.C.
