Here's the thing with raising minimum wage. I'm 61 years old, and have seen it raised many times. And every time they raise it, those making minimum become worse off than before. WHY? Because the businesses are not going to absorb that cost. They are going to raise prices and pass it along to you. Gas will go us, groceries will go up, utilities will go up, rent will go up, etc. So you will be paying for your own pay raise. I agree $&.25 is not enough to live on, but neither is disability, which is less than that. So what really needs to be done is to get control of Big Business and our government and stop THEM. Politicialns get paid $175,000 a year at the Congressional level. And it only gets higher from there. Now be honest, do you think any of them earn that money? And remember, once elected, they get it for LIFE. So you can become an elected official, not do one damned thing, and still get paid. And BIG BUSINESS will happily line their pockets to get what they want by buying votes. Minimum wage isn't the problem, settlers lived with little or no money. The problem is an out of control government who is out of touch with it's people. And they feel no need to get it touch.
