KUNM Call In Show 3/12 8a: 

Lawmakers in Santa Fe are considering proposals that would raise the state's minimum wage. The cities of Santa Fe, Albuquerque and Las Cruces have already done this and lawmakers are also reviewing a measure that would prevent more cities from raising their minimum wages. 

Who benefits from an increase in the minimum wage? Who is harmed? And at what point does a minimum wage equal a living wage?
