Raising the federal minimum wage is currently a hot topic in American politics. President
Joseph R. Biden wants to increase the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour but it will require both
houses of congress to approve the measure and based on how this congress is constructed, it seems like it
will be a daunting task.
For this paper, your objective is to write an essay discussing the costs and benefits of increasing the
minimum wage. The paper must include at least 4 credible, scholarly sources as well as a Works Cited
page. Wikipedia is not a credible source! Finally, your paper should be written in Times New Roman, size
