Should minimum wage be raised to $10.10 an hour?
Why or why not.
The President and supporters are suggesting we raise minimum wage up to $10.10 an hour. I have a teenage son who was let got from his $10.00/hr job and took a job at a bowling alley for $9.00/hr.
The free market apparently has determined that a 17 yr old kid should earn $9.00 per hour which is $1.75 more than the current Federal min wage. For the record he was out of work for a whole 3 days and never went on unemployment.
I would like to discuss a possible disconnect between what our President thinks is an answer towards helping people earn more when a 17 year old kid can go out on his own in a free market and earn much more than the minimum wage and about halfway to what is being promoted in Congress?
Is a Federally mandated boost in the minimum wage a one size fixes all cure to what some feel is a problem that some face? Does the Federal Government need to get involved or should the State’s individually decide for themselves what wages their constituents should earn per hour?
