Yes, We Can Fight Inequality: 3 Ways Washington Can Create Living-Wage Jobs – Annette Bernhardt – The Atlantic.

Some very good ideas worth considering, most of which the majority of the public would likely favor if given the choice.  It should really be a foregone conclusion that the federal minimum wage gets indexed to the rate of inflation.  No matter how often it gets raised, (which is obviously not often enough) it will always end up behind a living wage at some point.  As for now, it is well behind a living wage and the only way to help combat that on regular basis would be making sure it increases with the general cost of living in some way.  A simple solution but so difficult to achieve, unfortunately.
