Most of us have had a shitty job or two. But how many of us have had to support ourselves fully – let alone support a family – on a job like this? There are a lot of people out there who have to do just that.

This article is about how people that make minimum wage are struggling to get by in life, living paycheck to paycheck. This relates to gov and law because the government needs to step in help this people in need.

I think the minimum wage should be raised higher because not many people can support themselves or family by living off of minimum wage. The government should defiantly raise this because it's an easy fix and it would help citizens get out of poverty.

It's sad to see people struggle just to get by in life, but the minimum wage issue is a tough topic. Maybe it does need to be raised, but my hope is that the government does it in a way that has as minimalist impact on businesses possible. We wouldn't want employers to cut workers just because employers would be forced to pay there workers more.
