Minimum Wage

Hunter Henderson

Who earns minimum wage?

  • 50.4% are ages 16 to 24
  • 24% are teenagers (ages 16 to 19)
  • In 2013, 1.5 million earned exactly the federal minimum wage of $7.25

My opinion of the current minimum wage

I would rather be involved in organized crime and sell illegal narcotics than earn seven and a quarter dollars in return for an hour of my labor. Such a low wage is a contributing factor to america's violence.
