Should Minimum Wage Be Raised

by

WASHINGTON D.C.(WTVB) Let the debate begin. Senator Tom Harkin wants the lowest wage earners in America to have a little more. The Iowa Democrat and California Congressman George Miller have introduced a bill to raise the minimum wage from the current seven-dollars-25-cents an hour to ten-dollars-ten-cents and index future increases to changes in the cost of living.

Their bill also increases the wage for tipped workers to 70-percent of the minimum wage. That rate has not gone up in 20 years and currently stands at two-dollars-13-cents an hour.
