As you think about your argument for or against the $15.00 minimum wage, consider some of the following questions:

Why do you think caused the pay gap between men and women and how can we close the gap?
What are some of the challenges associated with organizing for increasing minimum wage to $15.00 an hour? Are some of the challenges specific to any low wage groups (i.e., women, young adults, elderly, or people disability, etc.) or industries (i.e., retail, restaurant, or domestic workers, etc.)
