I've posted this in a reply but will post it here for people who incorrectly think it will start a large ripple effect, don't know how it works or just want the info.

Thank you
I'm sick of people saying it'll be doom and gloom to raise min wage. Prices may go up to balance it out, but for the most part, we won't see $15 cheeseburgers, $12 for a gallon of milk.

We need a min wage increase. 7.25 is ridiculously too low.

To add, $15 as a min wage is too high, but $10 an hour would be perfect.

How much do they propose to bring it up to?

It just goes to show how a lack of information causes a ripple effect of ignorance. 

I personally don't think it should be $15 (my friends is a nursing assistant and makes 16.50) but it should be a least in the $10 range as that is what it would have been if they kept up the minimum wage with inflation increases. 

Quoting AVSpecWife4: Thank you

I'm right there with you. $15 is too much. I. Also a CNA and $15 is way too high. $10-$11 an hour would be nice.

If people want to earn more they can better themselves and work harder to achieve it. I don't think minimum wage should go up, people need to work harder.

Bullshit. Not everyone can be at the top jobs. There will always be a need for those to work the "crap jobs" and/or service jobs. Scrubbing toilets, serving food, fixing cars, etc. they are worth more than the crap they're paid. People not working hard enough isn't the issue. Do you know people would worker harder if they're paid more?

Eta for those who nit pick, for fucks sakes, I KNOW mechanics don't make min wage. That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying there will always be a need for people in the service industry - regardless of wages.
