    Great comparative essay, you did well to present both sides of the argument. By putting the opposing arguments first you develop a strong opinion without putting your own biases in it. How much do you think minimum wage should be increased to? Maybe look at this website to show more of the downsides and advantages of raising the minimum wage.

    I agree with everything said. I believe that minimum wage should be raised, but not necessarily to $15.

    Great article which presented a lot of facts, and overall didn’t let bias or opinions lead the article. It was a good choice to include your opinion at the end, but not to let it drive the narrative of where the article was going. I feel that the issue of minimum wage is a complicated subject which needs to be addressed in a way that can benefit everyone.
