Does raising the minimum wage actually harm the poor?
According to a study conducted by the conservative American Action Forum, increasing the minimum wage doesn’t fight poverty or close income gaps.
Supporters of raising the minimum wage argue that workers can’t live off a federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, which translates into $15,080 per year for a full-time worker.
AAF’s research shows that the majority of people who live in poverty are not the ones earning a minimum wage salary.
