Watch: Robert Reich Explains Why the Minimum Wage Should Be Raised

Posted on Mar 17, 2013

“Raising the minimum wage from the current rate of $7.25 an hour to $9 should be a no-brainer,” Robert Reich says. The labor secretary during the Clinton administration argues, among other points, that putting more money in the pockets of the country’s lowest earners is not only fair, it would also help boost the economy.

“Fifteen million workers would get a pay raise, allowing them to buy more and thereby keeping others working,” he says.

Watch below as Reich explains, in 2 minutes and 35 seconds, why he believes it’s time to raise the minimum wage.
