Should the minimum wage be raised to $15?

The House of Representatives has passed a bill that would gradually raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, which would more than double the current rate of $7.25. Advocates for the wage hike argue the current rate doesn’t constitute a living wage for workers. But opponents of the bill call it a “job killer” and say businesses would cut workers in order to afford the new higher wages.
