President Barack Obama has said he will continue to press Congress to raise the federal minimum wage as the US rebounds from recession.

In a Labor Day speech in Wisconsin, Obama said the economy and workers were now better off then when he took office in 2009.

His speech comes ahead of mid-term elections in November which will see a close race between Democrats and Republicans for control of the Senate.

He also pledged to protect the right for equal pay for women.
