Typical Minimum-Wage Earners Aren’t Poor, But They’re Not Quite Middle Class

This is an OP in GD ( http://www.democraticunderground.com/10024683618 ) from here 538 .

The article implies that the minimum wage should be for people who need it; not that workers earn it.

Here's the graph:


I think there is something wrong with the methodology employed. For example, household income was included, yet household size received no consideration. Methodology is not spelled out so I do not know how to refute this attack on raising the minimum raise.
