minimum wage increase????

avg. income in 1980 was 19,000

mimum wage now is 5.15 that's 10,700 a year. 206 a week when you take out taxes that's like 150 a week. dude that's nothing. i'm sorry yeah it might break into the businesses bottom line BUT i think it should be done. 8/hr is still poverty but at least the person sort of has a fighting chance. let's face it not everyone can go to school and get a great job that's high paying that's a fact someone has to take these jobs.

what say you???

Increasing minimum wage would just cause inflation to raise the price of everything. Buisness owner pays more= Buisness owner charges more.

they continually do that anyways. raising the wages helps the poor at least try to keep up.
