A big fat no. Minimum wage is a starting out wage for high schoolers and summer jobs. It was NEVER meant to be a living wage. In many states now where the state raised the wage to $15/hour, there are lay offs and robs tics and kiosks taking jobs. Let the free market determine wages. Where I live business pay at least $10/hour in order to compete with the local mines. Let capitalism guide the wages in marketplace!
