That’s the debate being waged as corporations and workers square off over an increase in the minimum wage. The movement to close the income disparity gap in America gained steam Thursday as fast-food workers and labor groups protested in 100 cities in front of many restaurants calling for higher wages. The protests came a day after President Obama proclaimed raising the minimum wage a top domestic priority. More than 50 members of Congress recently wrote a letter to the chief executive officers of five of the largest fast-food companies urging them to raise wages for their workers.
