Just a month and a half ago, D.C.'s battle over a living wage bill for big box retailers ended in a veto from District Mayor Vincent Gray. Now, the D.C. Council is considering four proposals for a minimum wage increase, and officials in neighboring Prince George's and Montgomery Counties have joined the cause. The proposals range from $10.55 an hour to $12.50 an hour, which would put the area alongside cities like San Francisco in terms of what it pays low-wage workers. Kojo looks at what minimum wage politics mean for workers, businesses and the regional economy.
