National Survey of 1,000 Adults

Conducted February 23-24, 2014
By Rasmussen Reports

 

1* 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 on?

3* Do you favor or oppose raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour?

4*Will raising the hourly minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 help or hurt the economy? Or will it have no impact on the economy?

5* A new non-partisan report estimates that raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour would lift 900,000 workers above the poverty line but at the same time would cost 500,000 jobs. Knowing this, do you favor or oppose raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour?
