no

Why they shouldnt raise it

Many of the people living in poverty do not have a job so they would not benefit at all from raising the minimum wage.

what obama is doing

President Obama wanted to raise the minumum wage to $9 an hour so that the poor could be helped out of poverty. But, research shows that if minimum wage was raised from $7.25 to $9.50 that only 11.3% of the people that benefited would be from the poor category
