VIDEO TOPIC

Minimum wage laws are meant to help workers by raising wages and preventing companies from exploiting employees. Do the laws succeed? Watch SITC’s video on the minimum wage, consult other sources, and create a 1-3 minute video, arguing for or against minimum wage laws and proposals to raise the minimum wage. What are the unintended consequences to a minimum wage? How do these laws affect workers and businesses? Do these laws actually help poor people?
