Both political parties are seizing on a report by the Congressional Budget Office that claims that raising the minimum wage could likely lift 900,000 families out of poverty, while possibly eliminating half-a-million jobs. Judy Woodruff talks to Thea Lee of the AFL-CIO and David Neumark of University of California, Irvine for opposing takeaways on the report.
