I support the raise of the minimum wage, however in order to do that we have to start off with something more reasonable. Businesses especially small businesses are not going to be able to hire as many people due to the increase of the minimum wage to $13. Also if the minimum wage increases to $13 an hour prices are going to go up and we will just have to raise the minimum wage again. I believe the minimum wage should be raised to $9-10 an hour. This will allow for businesses to afford the raise and also help put more money in the hands of Americans. The $13 minimum wage sounds appealing, however it would not be as beneficial to the American economy as it sounds.
