This essay examines the complexities involved with making the minimum wage a living wage for working families. The author contends that, since there are many ways by which businesses and corporations can maintain their profit margin, a simple change in legislation (i.e., merely raising the minimum wage) will not be sufficient for maintaining living wages for the working poor.
