wage increase is well and good but with the wage increase comes an increase on groceries . My patient gets $ 1,285 a month & can barely afford groceries he needs as a cardiac/dialysis patient . Just yesterday I went grocery shopping for him and paid $ 8.07 for 1 chicken . RIDICULOUS PRICES

There’s a reason for minimum wage. It’s entry level job. Less skills involved. Although minimum wage should go up gradually. Education or training is a must today. Don’t delay improving your skills.

I think that’s to much but 8 a hour sounds reasonable I also feel that hard workers should be more appreciated compacted to the ones that come in our work place to just get paid

Workers need more pay, but forcing small business will cost jobs. J.S.

Yes the cost of living goes up and wages stay the same. So some people are living paycheck to paycheck. I'm for the minimum wage increase and I pray God touches the heart of the ones that refuses to give it to us so that we can get it
