Opinion on Minimum Wage

I think that minimum wage is to low for a person to live off of. Minimum wage should be raised to at least ten dollars an hour. There it will be enough for people to manage their lives without having to worry about money everyday and enjoy life to a certain degree.

Fact 3

There is not one state in America where a minimum wage worker can afford a two-bedroom apartment working a 40-hour week.
