One topic that has seen plenty of talking, but little action, is increasing the minimum wage.

Minimum wage was established in 1938 in the throes of economic depression; morale was low and poverty was high.

The Economic Policy Institute estimates that if wages kept pace with productivity, minimum wage could be approaching or above $20 today.

In 2018, the $7.25 minimum wage was worth 14.8% less than in 2009 and 28.6% less than in 1968.

It’s time to raise the minimum wage.
