  • The Minimum Wage Debate

    For several years now, stagnant wage growth and a sputtering economy have encouraged a movement by labor rights groups and others to raise the minimum wage. Politicians on the left and some on the right have called for an increase in the minimum wage to as high as $15 an hour. Supporters claim that a minimum wage that is more than double the current $7.25 an hour will reduce poverty and inequality with little impact on employment, citing empirical studies that show no adverse effect. Opponents, however, are skeptical. They also cite findings showing that an increase in the minimum wage would increase inequality and do little to alleviate poverty, writes NCPA Senior Fellow Pam Villarreal.
