To do that, he said, will require better economic conditions for low- and middle-class Americans, one reason he wants to raise the hourly minimum wage from $7.25 to $9, a proposal he offered in his State of the Union speech on Tuesday.
As is usual, the real effects will be quite different. If the minimum wage gets raised, more young people will be laid off, and some will turn to gangs when they would have been at work.
