Minimum wage should not be raised. The minimum wage we have is pretty okay the way it is now. The current minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. When the prices of food and other supplies went up, so did the need for a raise of the wage.
Raising the wage would not help the poor. Because usually the lower class doesn’t have a job so it only helps the people that work. So the poor would still be poor, and not to mention the unemployment rate would go bonkers.
