Raising the Minimum Wage

Raising the minimum wage is a big agenda item for Democrats. I support this policy. A recent study has just concluded that each time the minimum wage has been raised, the earnings gap between blacks and whites has decreased. This is good. The negative to raising the minimum wage is a loss of low end jobs. I know there are some downsides, but a raise is overall good policy. Written by Paul Dribin
