Discussion Forum: œThe Minimum Wage. This discussion question is available for student posting for bonus points until March 26, 2014. After that date, posts will be ungraded.
President Obama recently proposed increasing the minimum wage to $9 an hour. Some liberals believe that $9 is not enough; they want a $15 an hour minimum. In contrast, most conservatives oppose the increase. Some conservatives even want to repeal minimum wage laws entirely. What do you think? What, if any, minimum wage do you favor? What is the reasoning behind your position?
