Hi there fellow zobopians!  The debate about the Minimum Wage is full of lies.

Lie #1) Minimum wage pulls workers out of poverty. Most employees are getting few, if any, company-sponsored benefits like healthcare or paid time off  Most workers are getting government benefits.

Lie #2) Minimum wage will kill jobs.  Most profits low-wage labor go toward the salaries and bonuses of corporate executives.

Lie #3) Increasing minimum wage will impact small businesses.  If or when wages go up, small businesses won’t feel the impact now, but it could change in the far future.

Lie #4) Most minimum wage workers are teenagers.  Most workers are working women over the age of 20, usually the head of her family.
