Low suicide rate linked to wage increase
Researchers at Emory University discovered raising the minimum wage by $1 reduces suicide rates by up to almost 6%.
They studied 25 years worth of data from all 50 states to draw the correlation.
It corroborates a study from last year where researchers found a 10% increase in the minimum wage reduced suicides by 3.6%.
Both studies looked at Americans without college degrees.
