Should the federal minimum wage be increased to $15?
Should the Federal Minimum wage see an increase to $15? The current wage is $7.25, and hasn't seen an increase since 2009. President Joe Biden has pushed for a $15 national minimum wage and for ending the tipped minimum wage for tipped workers and people with disabilities. Opponents argue it could lead to inflation, and loss of jobs. What do you think? Carrie Sharp was joined by Jason Freeman, Political Director for SEIU Local 205 on OpenLine to discuss how they've been pushing for this increase for years.
