The Impact of Raising the Minimum Wage on Women
  1. The median wage for servers is just slightly above half of what the median wage for all workers is in the US ($9.83 vs $17.12). And 70% of servers in the US are women.
  2. "…while women account for 30 % or less of employees in some high-wage sectors such as computer and mathematical science and architecture and engineering occupations, they account for more than 70 % of the workforce in low-wage sectors…”
  3. 2.8 million working single parents would benefit from the minimum wage increase - 80% of whom are women.

This report is a must read.
