I feel like it would have to depend on your situation. I made min. wage for 2 years and it was sort of okay. I also don't have a family. I was 18, in college, had a place to live, and no dependents. It would not make sense for me to make $13. It would have been nice though. Someone with a family wouldn't be able to support them with minimum wage. It makes sense for it to be raised for people in that sort of situation. So I guess my vote is really a yea and a nay. Though, I'm not sure that what I'm describe is something that is possible.
