Increase minimum wage and the wage of everyone above them must go up, as well as the cost for their goods or services. If a company can't afford to do that, people start getting laid off. If that isn't enough, businesses go under. Even if the business doesn't go under, all wages go up cost of products go up, therefore cost of living goes up. The worker is still making minimum wage, at a higher bracket and still can't afford to pay for anything. All this bill is going to do is cause inflation. I'm strongly opposed to this bill.
