$15 minimum wage would be beneficial
Debate Rounds (3)
Currently, the United States is filled with lazy "workers" who don't want to work. At minumum wage, on a 40-hour work week, one could be slightly below the $15,000 threshold for poverty. With that being said, 70% of those who have a minimum wage job, work 35 hours a week or less. (1)
People need to get active. People need to go to school and get a job. This is the land of oppurtunity, people should not be trying to live off of minimum wage in the first place. Making the minimum wage $15 would also cause many economic issues. What kind of prosperous corporation is going to want to hire more employees at $15/hr, if they are being taxed more (given Bernie Sanders is elected)? A $15/hr minimum wage is only going to make America more lazy.
