Do you think the minimum wage increase makes a difference?
Yes, anything helps!
No, it's not enough.
This poll is redundant. It is a simple fact(common sense) that an increased minimum wage costs jobs.Reply
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.Reply
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.Reply
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 matterReply
It doesn't help because it just causes the cost of everything to increase. Therefore, it makes no difference.Reply
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!Reply
People cannot live on what the minimum wage is now. Simple logic!Reply
BUT THE COST OF LIVING NEEDS TO QUIT RISING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, BENEFIT THE PEOPLE.Reply
Too many people lost their jobs.Reply
Thank you Andrea you must feel the same way I do we've on the front lines from the beginning and all we get is abused by all the people that took time off for the pandemic and have free money to step on the back of people to try to help them out nobody cares about the Frontline worker God help AmeriReply
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 workReply
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 inReply
