It is Time to Raise the Minimum Wage
It is time to raise the minimum. There has been a proposal by congress to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour. It went to the supreme court and they ruled the proposal constitutional. The pros for this proposal are that many people in America are getting paid minimum wage. A yearly salary of minimum wage is $15,000 dollars a year. The poverty line for America is $19,700 a year. That is not ok that they are all living in poverty. If the minimum wage is raised, many people will be able to buy necessities that could not before. That extra spending will create more spending and help the economy. The cons of this proposal would be that employers will not be able to pay for all their employees. Therefore, they would have to let go employees. That would then hurt the economy instead of helping it and many people all over the country would be without jobs. What is your take on the proposal?
