I’m here to tell you why raising the minimum wage is a bad thing. So hard to live on minimum wage, it’s always been that way. But wait until you hear what I have to say about raising it. While it’s nice to think about more money in your pocket, you need to think about in in a whole other way.
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.
