And again this article doesn't hit the real point behind Obama's wanting a $9/hr min. wages. Which is taxable income! The 10% tax bracket has a maximum earning of $17,900 which means for a person working 40hrs a week the max. wage would be $8.60/hr. So $9/hr would mean that a person working 40hrs would automatically be charge 15% taxes!!! So Obama's real reason isn't to help anyone but to increase their taxes instead.
