Those who want to raise the minimum wage claiming that it’s too low to raise a family have not done their due diligence and do not know the history of that program. It was never, ever intended to be for anyone other than young people such as high school students to earn a small income while they prepare for college and trade schools. To raise that wage would cause the cost of products to go up, young people to lose their jobs and in many cases, the businesses to close. Why do liberals always want to fix things that “ain’t” broke?
