The federal minimum wage is the lowest wage at which employers may pay their employees. Since July 24, 2009 the U.S. federal minimum wage has been set at $7.25 per hour. In 2014 President Obama proposed raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10 and tying it to an inflation index. The federal minimum wage applies to all federal employees including those who work on military bases, national parks and veterans working in nursing homes.
yes but only if the they tax the rich higher price than they due already so it would be balanced higher the wage lower the price people would get along better if the rich where taxed higher it would be easier on everyone else because the economics system has the money it wants and everyone else has the prices they want it be easier to make income
Yes just a little though, a lot of kids these days have to pay for something in their family, whether it be phone bill or gas for cars. Most times being payed 7.25 every hour you work is going to be awhile before they save enough money for gas.
minimum wage is too low but $15 an hour is not the answer for every job. wages should be based on the job, then performance and inflation come into affect. $8 an hour, which is over minimum is way too low for high labor jobs
