Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) – “Although workers under age 25 represented only about one-fifth of hourly paid workers, they made up about half of those paid the federal minimum wage or less.” [2017]
https://www.bls.gov/opub/reports/minimum-wage/2017/home.htm

Pew Research – “45% of the 2.6 million hourly workers who were at or below the federal minimum in 2015 were ages 16 to 24. An additional 23.3% are ages 25 to 34” [2015]

Pew Research – “Twenty-nine states, plus the District of Columbia and nearly two dozen cities and counties, have set their own higher minimums.”

Cato – “For teenagers, who comprise a large share of minimum wage workers, studies typically found that a mere 10 percent increase in the minimum wage resulted in a 1–3 percent decrease in employment.”
