This article is about how they are debating whether to keep the minimum wage or to raise or lower it. I think that they should raise it or keep it because I don't believe lowering the minimum wage will create jobs, but I think that raising it will help boost the economy

I think they should just keep the minimum wage where it is at. Lowering it will cause big problems, and a lot of people will get ticked off.

I agree that we should not lower minimum wage any further. Enough businesses already employ people at the lowest possible rate, and I have worked with college students and people supporting families already struggling to pay off debt and bills. Lowering minimum wage would not keep money circulating through the economy.

I agree. I think we should give disabled people more job options.

I like how they are trying to make people who are disabled have better jobs. It is really nice and they deserve it. They did not choose to be disabled so they should have the same choices we have.

I feel that it is very beneficial to everyone especially those who have disabilities and cannot perform to normal standards. I think that the government is taking a step in the right direction by helping those that cannot do it on their own.
