Congress is currently considering a bill that would hike the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour. While that might sound like a good idea, multiple studies have shown that raising the minimum wage hurts the very people who are supposed to benefit.
According to a median CBO estimate, if the federal minimum wage was hiked to $15 per hour, 1.3 million workers who would otherwise be employed would be without work in a given week.
On top of that, the bill that Congress is considering would strip workers of their tipped wages, which is a major source of income for many Americans.
