Do you support raising the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour?

President Biden and fellow Democrats want the change. The Associated Press on Jan. 30 reported: “Leading the charge is Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who unveiled $15 wage legislation this week with the backing of 37 Senate Democrats. His bill would gradually raise the wage to $15 over a period of five years. The federal minimum is $7.25 and has not been raised since 2009.”

When adjusting for inflation, the minimum wage has often been between $7 and $10 worth of value in today's dollars. Since $7 is kind of the low end when looking at inflation adjusted values it would seem like it is time for an increase. But I don't understand why $15 is the number being discussed, as that is way out of the historical range.
