A 15 $ Minimum-Wage – Would yield $17.08 worth of purchasing power in Macon, Georgia, but only $12.26 in New York City

When we discussed this subject in a previous post, we found that a $15 nationwide minimum wage would yield $17.08 worth of purchasing power in Macon, Georgia, but only $12.26 in New York City, once the differing price levels in the two cities were taken into account.
