Poll Shows Strong Support for $9 Per Hour Minimum Wage


PRINCETON, N.J., Nov. 11 (UPI) — More than three quarters of respondents to a Gallup poll indicated they would vote for raising the federal minimum wage to $9 per hour, the research firm said.

Gallup said 76 percent of respondents in a poll taken Nov. 5-6, indicated they would vote to add $1.75 to the current minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.

In a March survey that asked the same question, 71 percent indicated they would vote to raise the minimum wage by the same amount.

Gallup pointed out that the proposal in last Tuesday’s election to have the minimum wage in New Jersey raised to $8.25 per hour passed by a 61 percent to 29 percent majority.
