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!

It’s not the prices of fuel, it’s the bozo in the White House causing all of the chaos facing our nation. I wish our media outlets actually covered the real news instead boosting this post turtle even further. Nobody knows how the turtle got on the post but somebody put him there. We’re all F$&ked.

Very experienced mentor left their jobs in the fire service and nursing. They already had natural immunity, which made the vaccine pointless.

Glad my son in law decided to get vaccinated. I dont want to be around unvaccinated "health care" workers. Neither do I want to be around unvaccinated police and fire who I pay to serve and "protect". Glad, too, that teachers and staff are required to be vaccinated.

No I don't, however, I don't believe anyone should need a mandate to do the right thing. Through the years Americans have come together when needed to bring the country through events like this. Those that continue to cause deaths, shorthanded medical services and tumbling stock market for what?

I do not know anyone personally affected, but in a way we are all affected! I am vaccinated and I think it is the best way to get the horrible Democrats socialist control freaks off our backs, but it is NOT the American way to be forced into something! We have got to get rid of the Biden and Brown!

I voted(?) this way because ... I don't know anyone affected by the mandate. But I don't understand people's resistance to this. Consider mandates we all accept without complaint: stop signs, seat belts, motorcycle helmets. Come on, people. Get the shot, Keep yourself and the rest of us healthy.

I know several people that have had strokes and other serious side effects from this vaccine, people get the jab before researching it
