RAISE MINIMUM WAGE?
RAISE MINIMUM WAGE?
Annette Bernhardt
Many low-wage workers across the country would like to see an increase in the minimum wage in their state or nationally. Current federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, although some states and cities are higher. Seattle and San Francisco, for example, instituted a minimum wage of $15.00 per hour in 2014. Supporters of a minimum wage increases say it increases the standard of living of workers, reduces poverty, reduces inequality and boosts morale. Opponents of the minimum wage say it increases poverty and unemployment because if wages are higher employers will employ fewer people and lay people off. If these opponents are correct then unskilled and younger workers would be hurt the most.
