Anyone with at least a brain stem would vote NO to this unless they're simply trying to pander to gullible constituents. JUST READ THE OFFICIAL CBO which PROVES that raising the FEDERAL minimum wage would cause hundreds of thousands of people to lose jobs, raise the unemployment rate rapidly, and fail to even help those that this bill intends to help. I have a small family of three and if this happened I would lose my job. Let states decide how much money their citizens should make. This would help NO ONE.
