I believe that it is almost pointless to raise the minimum wage because if we raise minimum wage, then the price of everything else will raise. A company is not going to pay it's workers more money without raising the price of their products.
I agree, raising the minimum wage is pointless if all it is going to do is make things more expensive.
I agree Mcdonalds and walmart aren't going to suffer a loss in there profits if minnimum wage rises prices on food and items will rise
I agree with you, however some might say they wouldn't mind having raised prices because they would have more money in their pocket. Minimum wage original purpose was to provide employment for the minority and decrease the rate of poverty. To me, I feel like it isn't helping, and if we raise the minimum wage, it could help more families and workers more than it is now.
I agree with Taylor. Raising minimum wage will raise all prices in the area. So you'll be making more money but also paying more money for things that used to be cheaper. I feel like if you are passionate about your job but you aren't making what you wish to make be patient because most likely you will get a raise.
I agree with Taylor, by raising minimum wage the prices of everything else will raise eventually. If we raise minimum wage then this will happen again and we will be stuck in the same boat.
I believe we should raise the minimum wage because it doesn't help the minority as much. If we raise it, more people wouldn't be struggling to pay the bills and provide food on their tables for their families. However, some might say it would raise prices of certain products. A company will raise their prices, but more minimum wage workers would have more income and money to provide instead of having to work more hours.
The only people it really would help is teenagers because most don't pay bills. Raising the minimum wage won't help people pay their bills better because the price of their bills would go up because all the services would cost more because of the higher wage paid to workers.
I do believe that the boost in pay will be beneficial and give relief to many but this relief would only be for a short amount of time before people will raise prices and possibly taxes to gain more money with the new boost in pay.
While it would help me and countless others there is really no point all it would do is lower the value of te dollar and people that already get paid 15 dollars an hour would be less motivated to achieve their more difficult work.
I strongly disagree. Raising the minimum wage would make workers want to work more on their difficult work, because more work means more money and more money means happier people and their families.
I do believe that we should raise minimum wage to help benefit society but I also know that with the boost of minimum wage prices will go up and the relief will only last a little while.
I believe that raising minimum wage in today's society is pointless. If a company were to raise minimum wage, they would also raise the price of the products so their income wouldn't deteriorate, even if they are multi-million dollar companies. Without the proper procedure or protection, this problem will probably never be fixed anytime soon.
