Anglicare says minimum wage rise not enough

Anglicare says minimum wage rise not enough. “There’s a long history here of government forcing businesses to increase wages on the backs of low-skilled workers,” she said, noting the minimum wage rose just $2.30 since 2009. “For all the government’s assurances that raising the minimum wage will reduce unemployment, it’s proven to be a very costly job-killer.” The $15 hour is only one of many things keeping the federal minimum wage above inflation.

Even so, at least one D.C. employer is not quite ready to roll over. “They don’t like how it’s going, but they’re not going to throw it away.” In fact, the city of Washington is considering increasing its minimum wage to $15 an hour, to bring in more money for public schools.
