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...

dumbocrat
BoulderBull

We have a national debt problem owed to other countries that is growing every minute. If the US would just put a penalty on raising the debt it wouldn't be a problem. It would most likely reduce imports therefor be giving jobs to US citizens, reducing transportation costs, reducing transportation emissions and make more US manufactured products. Without doing so we are sitting ducks waiting to go into poverty....
