I've been making 7.25 work but things are tight. 9 will make things much better for me.
If they raise the min wage to $9, things will still be tight. You do know that prices for goods will increase in order for employers to cover this increase. So the $9 you'll be making will be the same as the $7.25 your making now..does that make sense ?

Kind of makes sense but like the president says, you can work full time at 7.25 an hour and still be in poverty. That should not be.
WHATEVER the minimum wage is, and you work full time, you will always still be in poverty. If they raised it to $20 an hour, prices for everything go up, so your in the same boat. The trick to it all is to climb the ladder or get the schooling/training you need to get ahead. Its been said on here before that the minimum wage was meant to be an entry level pay...put in your time and you get raises, finish school and your pay jumps up...its a no brainer! thats just the way its supposed to work. To many people, mostly younger ones are pampered by their parents and teachers all thru school, or they grow up leeching off society, and when they hit the real world on their own, they are shocked that they have to work for a living. Sorry for the rant, no disrespect meant

Actually, prices raise whether or not minimum wage goes up. This will help these working poor. My concern is that it will hurt small business owners. They should raise the minimum wage every year, by a few cents rather than jump from 7.25 to 9.00 all at once.

don't govt employees (the real ones) get cost of living raises each year or so? Why do they assume their the only ones affected by inflation?
all for it
