My hunch: the Tea Party will point to the marked increase in earnings among Black and Hispanic households and ask “What’s the problem?” Progressives will look at the 71 cents on the dollar earned by Blacks and the 66 cents on the dollar and say: “THAT’s a BIG Problem”. And the chart in the article shows, the gap isn’t going to close any time soon unless the minimum wage is increased.
