Presentation and Discussion:
Raise The Minimum Wage?
on Tuesday, April 8, 7:30 p.m. BWVC
There’s been a lot of discussion about raising the minimum wage on the federal, state and local levels. Some states and localities have already taken action . Will raising the minimum wage help lift people out of poverty in the long term or is it a short term fix to a much deeper underlying economic problem?
21 states and the District of Columbia have a higher minimum wage than the Federal level. New Jersey approved an increase in the minimum wage in November 2013. SeaTac, a suburb of Seattle in Washington State voted to raise the min wage to $ 15.00
Is there any noticeable long term effect to the economies in the states that have higher minimum wage?
This will be one of the topics of our discussion.
Come and join our discussion on Tuesday evening, April 8th at 7:30 p.m. At the Buzz Ware Village Center
