Student reporters investigate solutions to the minimum wage debate from Student Reporting Labs on Vimeo.

The current federal minimum wage limit has become topic of much controversy.  Individuals that work for many service industries feel that the wage is not suitable to live on and that in order for them to survive in this economy the wage limit must be remedied. Some look at the wage increase as a simple solution to inflation and cost of living appreciation, but how do those variables effect students? The PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs in Fraser, Michigan investigate how students and politicians feel about creating a wage limit that is determined by an age requirement.
