Anyone who opposes this may not be thinking of the young adults who go to college in order to earn more. How do you pay for it? By working full time sometimes working two jobs! You have to budget of course, some people live with their guardians and some don't. Regardless, it's unfair. Many companies make it impossible to get a raise even if you've worked their for years. The raise in wage will give opportunity to the youth to think I can do more, I can attend this 4 year college without skipping a semester. You still need the full time job but it's helpful.
