10 truths about the minimum wage

One by-product of the debate in Kansas over whether to raise its minimum wage (currently $2.65 per hour): a list of facts about minimum wage laws by Graham Kreicker:

Arguments against making the minimum wage a living wage are based on the faulty claim that it will hurt corporate profits and result in higher unemployment. But history shows that dividing the pie more equitably will neither bankrupt corporations nor cost us jobs. It will, rather, improve life for all employees and their families.

Just as true in Kansas as it is in Washington.
