Questions - Minimum Wage - February 14-15, 2013
National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted February 14-15, 2013
By Rasmussen Reports
1* Do you favor or oppose raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $9 an hour?
2* Should the hourly minimum wage be tied to inflation, so when the cost of living goes up, the minimum wage automatically goes up, too?
3* Is the minimum wage a wage someone can live on?
4* Will raising the hourly minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 help or hurt the economy?
5* Suppose someone lost his or her job and has been looking for work for a full year without success. Should state governments offer such workers a minimum wage government job instead of welfare payments?
