Here are two stories about the possibility of increasing the minimum wage. I want you to read both stories and tell me the following about each:
1. Why are Democrats talking about this issue now?
2. What is minimum wage? What does the President want to see it raised to?
3. What does the Congressional Budget Office say the increase would do?
4. Why have Republicans opposed raising the minimum wage?
1. What group of workers has been protesting to see the minimum wage raised?
2. What does the report quoted in the story say happened in states that raised their minimum wages?
3. How does the story say this could impact teens and jobs?
