Minimum Wage Raise

Jbmelk
KuronoaYoshiaki

I am against a raise in the minimum wage for a few reasons. 1. A minimum wage would force many jobs to be lost. Say for example, if there was a $15 minimum wage, then I will use Dunder Mifflin Paper as an example. They have 15 employees in one branch and they all get paid, say $9/hr. Dunder Mifflin is breaking even and doing ok. But, now that the federal government has stepped in and raised the minimum wage to $15/hr, Dunder Mifflin has had to fire people due to the higher wages. Now Dunder...

Yet, Indian urban...

The minimum wage should be raised

wilhop17

The purpose of the minimum wage is to help those disenfranchised workers who earn far less than what most Americans would consider acceptable. However, raising the minimum wage will only hurt those same marginalized workers. This is because you force those disenfranchised workers to compete with more qualified workers. Consider this, you are an immigrant who has just moved to the United States. You are largely unfamiliar with the language, culture, or customs of the United States. You need a job...

In the meantime, I...
