Obama is right to push for a higher minimum wage
James Downie offers five reasons why President Obama is right to call for raising the minimum wage to $9 an hour and indexing it to inflation:
1. It will help the economy.
2. It reduces poverty and inequality.
3. It reduces the wage gap for women and minorities.
4. Indexing the minimum wage is common sense.
5. It’s consistent with American values.
