Hosted by

Advocates for increasing the federal minimum wage call it a "stimulus program" paid for, not by government, but the private sector. Opponents warn of lost jobs and hard times for small business. We hear that some cities, states — and even some big companies — are increasing wages as debate goes on in Washington. Also, Secretary Hagel proposes cuts to the Defense budget. On today's Talking Point, what's next for Ukraine? We hear the latest from Kiev and Moscow.
