Minimum Wage Basics: Public Opinion on Raising the Minimum Wage

Americans across all political and demographic distinctions strongly favor raising the minimum wage as a tool to improve workers’ lives, address income disparity, and stimulate our consumer-driven economy.  As the November 2014 minimum wage ballot initiatives and the results of various polls make clear, the American people support strong wage floors that help businesses thrive and enable workers to provide for themselves and their families.  The public’s appetite for strong minimum wages sends a clear message to lawmakers:  vote to raise the minimum wage and voters will support you.
