Young Arkansans say minimum wage won’t cut it

Today, Arkansans, ages 18 and older, will get the chance to let their voices be heard by voting ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to Issue 5. If passed, the measure would increase the state’s minimum wage from $6.25 to $7.50 per hour on January 1, 2015; to $8 on January 1, 2016; and to $8.50 per hour on January 1, 2017.
