In the article, “Raising the Minimum Wage” I learned that It is difficult to survive on the minimum wage, especially when trying to provide for a family. However, like anything, there are both pros and cons. One of the cons that are stated is that raising the minimum wage is said to have a difficult impact on our economy and small businesses. With both pros and cons in mind, President Biden and Congress are considering doing this.
I personally believe that the minimum wage should be raised. It’s not fair for the struggling single parents that work a minimum wage job and can barely afford to take care of themselves and their families. Another big benefit is that it will bring hundreds of thousands of Americans out of poverty.
Do you think the minimum wage should be raised?
