On Episode 251 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, co-hosts and sisters Leslie and Tesi try to better understand the economy that, on one hand, so many tell us is booming while, on the other hand, we see the reality of the working poor. If the unemployment rate is at historic lows, then why are an estimated 41.4 percent of the total U.S. population considered poor or low-income? Leslie and Tesi take a deep dive into research and talk about the history of the minimum wage in our country, the arguments for and against raising a minimum wage, and the impact that a higher rate of pay would have on nearly 50% of American earners. It’s an interesting discussion, full of facts and anecdotes that all lead to one conclusion: The minimum wage is in desperate need of a mama bear.
