A lot of people feel as though the minimum wage is too low, unable to pull employees out of poverty. Others feel as though the minimum wage should stay about the same, but rise with inflation every year. Many long-term employees facing the prospect of living off minimum wage for the rest of their lives demand it be raised.
I plan to use Saturday's post to present my up-to-date opinion about the minimum wage. However, I want to gain a full understanding of the different viewpoints about this issue. My studies will include any arguments you deliver via the comments section below.
I look forward to hearing what you all have to say.
