Explore the numbers at stake in the debate over raising federal minimum wage in this interactive from KQED. The interactive compares nominal and real wages adjusted for inflation and how minimum wage rates differ throughout the country. In the accompanying classroom activity, students graph the data to find trends and patterns and learn that understanding the numbers can help them come to their own conclusions about the issue.
