National Survey of 1,000 American Americans
Conducted October 12-13, 2014
How closely have you followed recent news reports about the minimum wage?
2* Is the minimum wage intended to be a wage someone can live
Do you favor or oppose raising the minimum wage from its current level of $7.25
4* (Asked of 605 adults who favor raising the
minimum wage) Several proposals have been made for
raising the minimum wage from $7.25 an hour. Do you favor raising the hourly
minimum wage to $8.25, $10.10, $11.50 or $15?
Should the hourly minimum wage be tied to inflation, so when the cost of living
goes up, the minimum wage automatically goes up, too?
Will raising the hourly minimum wage help or hurt the economy? Or will it have
no impact on the economy?
How often do you eat at a fast-food restaurant - rarely or never, at least once
a week, two or three times a month or every now and then?
8* Would you be willing to pay more for fast food if it meant
higher wages for those who work in these restaurants?
you or a member of your immediate family held a minimum-wage job in the past
