$10 Minimum Wage Would Push More Than Half Of Working Poor Out Of Poverty.
Tina Miller, MA,CFLE stashed this in p2
Not sure why you keep pushing this story, but raising the minimum wage as a justification for helping people not be "working poor" is simply just a semantic game. The government controls the definition of "Working poor" and it's based on a percentage.
Again, my original comment:
I think the key word is "temporarily" until some percentage of those working poor get laid off and then inflationary pressures make $10/hour the new $5. Or maybe it's just a sneaky backhanded way to increase payroll taxes?
Right, moving the minimum wage solves some problems and creates other problems.
Specifically, it increases inflation and unemployment because the same wage pool goes to fewer people.

I don't think Tina is pushing the story -- she's just stashing it for herself.
