25 Facts About the Minimum Wage Told Through Images

The latest collaboration between AFL-CIO and Upworthy as part of the Workonomics section takes a look at the reality of the minimum wage through 25 graphics, including some with cool animations. The images take a deeper look at who gets the minimum wage, dispel criticisms of raising the wage and explore the reality of the economic impacts of raising the wage.

The images were produced by Newsbound for KQED's The Lowdown Blog.
