Let me explain this to all you liberal snowflakes looking for minimum wage to be increased to $15 per hour. If this happens, everything you buy will increase in price. Employers will hire less people and cut current employee hours. You would basically be shooting yourself in the foot with that type of increase. That being said, it could be increased a little. What you don't realize is that the reason wages are so low is because of the illegals who will work for a low wage with no overtime.
