THIS Is What Happened When Minimum Wage Was Hiked Over 20% To $14!

What’s your opinion on minimum wage? Should there be a minimum wage? Should the government be able to decide what businesses pay their employees? Tell me what you think.
It’s very difficult to live on minimum wage these days that’s for sure. But instead of increasing that wage forcefully, I believe we should be looking at why things are so expensive. That’s what isn’t being addressed.

 
An individual’s income is extremely important for the economy. Without good wages, people can’t save money. People can’t buy things. People need money and if they don’t have enough, that will show up in local businesses. But today, we are faced with a big dilemma: Governments are starting to forcefully raise people’s wages to a dramatic degree. The negative impact is felt instantly.
