Many US States, Counties and Cities Raising Minimum Wage

After years of lobbying by labor groups, several states and cities in the US have raised the minimum wage. Labor groups like the Fight for $15, began fighting for increased wages in 2012 and received much criticism. Spiraling housing costs and widening income inequality are now putting pressure on lawmakers to pass the higher minimum wages.
