House Democrats are poised to pass a $15 minimum wage this week—a policy that’s become more and more mainstream within the Democratic Party. But would it actually help workers? What effect would it have on the economy? And what effect has it already had in places where it’s been tried? We ask those questions and more in today’s conversation with Rachel Greszler, a labor expert at The Heritage Foundation. Plus: The Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” removes a controversial scene depicting teen suicide. We discuss.

We also cover these stories:

  • President Donald Trump denies racism in weekend tweets, while Republicans offer divided response.
  • Justice Department decides not to bring civil rights charge against New York police officer in death of Eric Garner.
  • Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., introduces bills aimed at reining in college tuition and student loan debt.
