Description: Amazon.com recently announced that it would be raising its entry wage to $15 an hour and would lobby for a higher minimum wage at federal, state and municipal governments. Other companies have announced similar moves in recent months, including Walmart, which bumped its starting wages to $10 an hour. These are interesting developments that merit a bit of discussion.
