Obama's Push to Raise the Minimum Wage

It's not about helping entry level employees. It is no secret that each time the minimum wage has gone up, huge numbers of entry level people have suddenly been priced out of jobs. Obama knows this.

He also knows that most large scale union agreements have union workers' wages indexed to the federal minimum wage. If the miminum wage goes up, all the union workers get a raise.
