In the article “YOU DECIDE: Raising the Minimum Wage” (McGraw Hill) I learned that the minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. I learned that it is barely enough to pay for rent and maintain yourself. There is a debate on whether the minimum should or shouldn’t be raised because good things could come from it but also bad things.What do you think should minimum wage increase or not?
I think that the minimum wage should go up. I think this because I believe that this will slowly but surely it will help improve the economy. But it might also have a negative effect because it might have some negative economic consequences. It is hard to try and support a family only making minimum wage throughout your life.
