A national $15 minimum wage by 2024 is an important corrective to ensure that low-wage workers share the benefits of economic growth.
The bulk of recent economic research on the minimum wage, as well as the best scholarship, establishes that prior increases have had little to no negative consequences and instead have meaningfully raised the pay of the low-wage workforce.
Minimum wage workers, and low-wage workers generally, are mostly adults and are also disproportionately women and people of color.
Workers in every region of the country will soon need $15 per hour to maintain a modest but adequate standard of living.
