Why should someone with a high school education be paid $13 per hour. There are people out there who went to college and worked very had for their degrees and they can't even get a job! Why should employees have to pay someone that much when they're not even that qualified. It's unfair to the employer. How much money can you pay someone to flip a burger and ring up groceries?? Our country runs on small businesses and I just do not see how it'll be possible for the small businesses to pay their employees $13? There will be no money left over for other things and they will have to raise their prices. People will not want to spend more money on their goods just so that the employees can get paid more.
