The three ads will focus on the overwhelming economic consensus that minimum wage hikes lead to job losses, how minimum wage hikes actually increase the proportion of families living in poverty or near it, and the fact that job losses that follow such hikes disproportionately hurt minorities and teenagers. The ads will appear today, tomorrow, and Thursday.
