Minimum Wage Hike

The president in his State of the Union address proposed raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 per hour. Economists are divided on how such a hike would impact the economy and unemployment, and House Republicans unanimously rejected a bill that would increase it to $10.10 over the next two years.
