Minimum Wage

Why Minimum Wage Should be Raised

Raise the Workers Pay

Minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. That is only about $15,000 a year for full-time work. Most minimum wage workers work for big companies. The CEOs of the companies are getting bigger bonuses each year, and telling their workers they do not have the money to raise minimum wage. Why not just keep the CEOs salary the same and raise the workers pay?
