Raising minimum wage sounds like it helps people, but only the government is sure to get something out of it more tax!
Raising the minimum wage will take a lot more tax out of minimum wage earners paychecks! It might even increase the tax they pay to more than the amount they take home. Remember, Social Security, Medicare ... all those other taxes will be bigger amounts, too, coming out of your check. If you still have a job. Because someone owns a business doesnt mean they have unlimited money. They can only hire the help they can afford, which might mean a bigger share of work for people who do get to keep their job; so youre likely to be working harder for that minimum wage increase.
Why not do really good work and get a raise, or a better job? Thats something you can control. Government isnt your friend. They dont do anything unless theres something in it for them.
