Huffington Post: Raising The Minimum Wage Is A Really, Really Popular Idea

“Fifty-three percent of all Americans say that raising the minimum wage will help workers, while just a third see the idea as a negative.

Proposals to raise the minimum hourly wage to $10.10, $12 and $15 are all popular, but there’s more backing for a smaller wage hike. Sixty-six percent of Americans support a $10.10 federal minimum wage; 59 percent support $12 and 48 percent support $15.

Public support for a $15 minimum has remained roughly steady since last summer, although advocates have racked up legislative victories in New York and California, which both announced plans for a minimum wage hike.”
