WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says Congress should finish the job he started by raising the U.S. minimum wage to $10.10.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says Americans deserve to know where their representatives stand. He says if lawmakers oppose a wage hike, Americans should ask why. He says opponents have been making the same arguments for years and are always proved wrong.

Obama recorded his address at the White House before leaving Friday for California. On Wednesday he issued an executive order raising federal contractor wages, but it doesn't apply to other workers.
