Learn more about Minimum Wage
The federal minimum wage is the lowest wage at which employers may pay their employees. Since July 24, 2009 the U.S. federal minimum wage has been set at $7.25 per hour. In 2014 President Obama proposed raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 and tying it to an inflation index. The federal minimum wage applies to all federal employees including those who work on military bases, national parks and veterans working in nursing homes. See recent minimum wage news

Say that we pay everybody 1 million dollars a day, how much will Milk cost the next day. It is an extreme way to show that it does not work, thus, wages should be what the market will and can bare.

Only after careful review of the demographics, level of education, level of trade expertise, level of commitment to employment growth. 4 years ago from a Democrat in Lake Oswego, OR
Possibly. The key is to get the right balance of EITC, minimum wage, and employment. We may not be there right now. Raising to $15 is likely to introduce significant trade-offs and would likely be detrimental. 4 years ago from a Libertarian in Bothell, WA

No need to raise the minimum wage, if we would simply enforce immigration properly and deport illegals. Wages would rise naturally with less downward competitive pressure for those jobs. 4 years ago from a Republican in Southlake, TX
No...however there should be total single-payer health/mental health coverage and each state should be mandated to enact a minimum wage that will allow a person/family to have a certain minimum living standard for that state and/or areas within that state. 4 years ago from a Democrat in New York, NY
Minimum wage should be adjusted gradually on the order of CPI% plus a catch up 3% until minimum wage matches the present value of the year 2000 minimum wage. 4 years ago from a Republican in Centreville, VA
