Raising the minimum wage too high will result in a bigger mess than we already have. It will cause prices to rise across the board...someone has to has to pay for that raise and the buck stops with the consumer. Think of what it will do to the retired people on a fixed income...they will go broke finally. They get no raises to support higher prices. They will be on the streets! This is one of the most short sighted ideas that has ever been pro ported by this administration and, believe me there are many!
