The debate on minimum wage dates back to the past century. In the United States, the con side comprised of the orthodox economics who were advocating for freedom of substantive due process while the pro side entailed institutional economics and various social reformers (Kaufman, 2010). In 1890, Americans annual wage was approximately $380 which was way below the poverty line at the time (Gootnick, Sherrill, and Richard 2016). Political movements emerged with the goal of improving the minimum wage and working conditions of lower class citizens. The movements were motivated by countries such as Australia and New Zealand which has come up with the first minimum wage policy. As a result of continuous pressure, in 1912 States such as Massachusetts came up with laws that guided the minimum wage but mainly focused on women as the minority group. Moreover, men earned higher and enjoyed more freedom compared to women. It was assumed that by improving the minimum wage for the minorities then the living standards would rise and people and the pressure from political movements would reduce.
