Yes, low paid workers should receive a raise. The cost of living is not stable and it continues to rise so the low-paid or minimum wage workers should also receive a raise when this cost goes up. It is not fair nor is it humane that a worker must work long hours, but is still not able to provide for their families.
Today's economy is hard for everyone, especially the lowest paid workers. Companies should understand that it is hard to survive on low wages, and they should make it easier for their employees. It is time to raise the minimum wage so that people can live comfortable, even if they have the lowest paying jobs.
