People cannot live on what the minimum wage is now. Simple logic!

BUT THE COST OF LIVING NEEDS TO QUIT RISING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, BENEFIT THE PEOPLE.

I think the price increase is great for people to get back to work and get off an appointment and living off the government cuz this is not the American way Americans work for a living get off your ass and go back to work

I also think that people who are holding out on unemployment should return to work. Some of us have been working throughout the pandemic without the option of taking government aid or unemployment. it's time to do your fair share and participate in the community you live in

This poll is redundant. It is a simple fact(common sense) that an increased minimum wage costs jobs.

It's not necessary at all. Living costs going down would be a better answer.

Minimum wage was never meant to live on.

It's not necessarily only about salary. The cost of living (food, housing, gas, health insurance, etc) have all greatly increased. Paying increased minimum wage results in increased prices for businesses that often cannot afford to pay more.

Hurts the small business owners. They will just hire fewer people to compensate. Geez, tired of people who have NEVER run a business before making these kinds of decisions.

Renting in this town is all ready on the absolutely crazy side. Increasing minimum wage will just makes things worse. its bad enough i get my rent raised every year and well this increase wont cover it at all. The renting prices are out of hand and I feel no matter how much I make it wont matter

It doesn't help because it just causes the cost of everything to increase. Therefore, it makes no difference.

It will never be enough, as long as people get "free money" from the state and federal programs, they will not work. Stop the handouts!

Kids spend way too much time on phones. They need to concentrate on reading, writing and arithment which schools need to go back to teaching. I believe social media has harmed our children.

There are so many families who can't afford to pay for lunches whether it is hot or cold. I think this is going to be so helpful. ❤️

I believe that since it is from our tax money and property taxes that all should be able to go eat for free

Why give all the free meals to the ungrateful bums that live of free handouts but refuse to work for it. Feed our kids.
