The minimum wage for Government Contracts should be raised to $13/ hr. Corporations and business leaders should understand their self interest is in raising the minimum wage on their own so workers can buy their products and services and shop in their stores. Walmart just raised wages then cut workers hours. This will happen throughout the corporate world if the Government gets involved. Best to let the market take control and when corporations choke on their own greed they may begin to understand that their workers need a livable wage to participate in the economy.
