Speaking in Michigan, President Barack Obama is arguing for an increase in the minimum wage, saying no one who works full time should be in poverty. Obama says raising the minimum wage won't solve all of the nation's economic problems. But he says it's good for business, increasing productivity and giving workers more buying power. Ahead of his remarks, Obama visited an Ann Arbor deli where workers make $9 an hour, higher than the federal hourly minimum wage of $7.25.
