The Truth about the Minimum Wage

My Thoughts:

 

It's harder to live on miminum wage than people thing. The poverty line is just barely below the amount a person making miminum wage earns. That aside, a lot of the problems nowadays have more to do with how people spend their money, not how much they make. It's hard, but entirely possible.

My Thoughts;

My Thoughts:

I disagree with a lot of the points brought up in this article. I actually think that raising the minimum wage would be a detriment to our society. Even though it would give some people more money, it would drive our economy further into debt, and also raise general prices.
