Introduction:

Welcome to our blog!

This blog will examine the injustices that occur with the distribution of wages in modern America.

What we want to know:

Does ones race, age, and/or gender determine their amount of income?  Are places with that provide minimum wage more likely to discriminate? Is this problem localized in a specific state or is it a nation wide issue?

Why we want to know:

Currently, the minimum wage does not compromise the cost of living for family: extra pay cuts cannot be afforded. That is why it is important that reality of this discrimination comes to surface. We want to see which factor (race, age, gender) has the most weight with uneven distribution.

How will we determine these factors?

We will combine different opinions of authors, research, charts, and interviews to see if there is a wage gap and which factor (race,gender,age) causes the largest gap.
