Perspectives on minimum wage have changed significantly over the past twenty years, as seen in the increased momentum of movements around the country to increase workers' salaries. Critics of an increased minimum wage argue that it will lead to mass lay-offs and increased unemployment. Proponents argue the opposite, that it will jump start our economy. In this book, economists, the media, the courts, and even ordinary people will weigh in on this contentious issue, allowing students to evaluate the minimum wage from all sides.
