Yes, I believe the min wage should be raised to reflect the cost of living. Additionally, I believe that if/when the min wage is raised, all salaries must be raised. It would not be fair for the "new hire" to be making as much as someone that has been working at that location for a year or two. It's sad to see that people can not afford to live in the same city they grew up in. However, I think the standards of welfare (or whatever it's called nowdays) should also be changed. It's not fair for hard working people who need help to get less help than those who are not willing to lift a finger.
