Since 1938, when the first minimum wage was established in the U.S. at the federal level, economists, politicians and others have argued the merits and potential pitfalls of a mandatory minimum wage. Reports full of charts and data abound and we draw them like sabers to support our case or refute the opponent’s. People approach the subject from myriad angles.
