In the article “Raising the Minimum Wage” I learned that government officials are considering raising the minimum wage. Currently, the minimum is $7.25 an hour which can be difficult to survive with this amount of money. Raising the minimum can be beneficial for those who need it but, it can also lead to negative effects. In my opinion, I believe that we should raise the minimum wage because there is a lot of poor families that need to pay for bills and food. They cannot live off of minimum wage because they won’t be able to afford anything.

Do you think the minimum wage should go up?
