Minimum Wage Impact Report
On September 13th, 2016 the Colorado Women's College, in collaboration with The Women's Foundation of Colorado, released a seminal, nonpartisan study titled "The Impact of a $12.00 Minimum Wage on Women in Colorado." This study examines the potential impacts of an increase in the minimum wage for Colorado women and their families. Among key findings, the report predicts that the Colorado Gross Domestic Product (GDP) will grow by $400 million, and incomes will increase for 20% of households in Colorado.
