Economic inequality is rampant in the U.S. today. Raising the minimum wage will ensure that workers can support themselves and their families while helping in the economy grow in a sustainable way.
Why should the minimum wage for a single person with no dependents be above the poverty level for a family of four? This bill will cost people their jobs and increase unemployment.
