Who earns the minimum wage? Here’s the answer, in three graphs
The fact that there are so many minimum age workers in any group is appalling and just goes to show that the battle to enter the middle class is nearly impossible under current working conditions. It is criminal that the minimum wage is actually less today (when adjusted for inflation) than I made back in 1963 when adjusted for inflation. In fact I would have been working for less than $.50 an hour then. In the meantime, the salaries of CEOs have become sinful!
