Bare Minimum: Why We Need to Raise Wages for America’s Lowest-Paid Families

The Leadership Conference Education Fund and the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality released “Bare Minimum: Why We Need to Raise Wages for America’s Lowest-Paid Families,” a report on working people and their struggle to make a living when paid the federal minimum wage or tips. The report makes a case for raising wages that is grounded in history, economics, and movements across the country, but particularly in the lived experience of our nation’s lowest-paid working people.
