Regardless, minimum wage should be a state option rather then a federal option.

@B4KT7QSIndependent from Minnesota answered…9hrs

No, it’s not a sustainable solution because it increases prices and other job roles demand higher pay in a never ending cycle BUT we should invest in better jobs and training programs so that people working minimum wage can develop skills to work in trades/ technical fields/ office administration to earn more

@B4KNGZMLibertarian from Iowa answered…23hrs

No, wages should be negotiated between the employee & employer.

@B4K99XMDemocrat from Minnesota answered…2 days

Yes but disability rules should reflect the change to the minimum wage.

@B4JS6SLAmerican Solidarity from Kentucky answered…3 days

Yes and no because as of now they are too low with inflation but consistently raising them would be a never ending cycle

@B4JPJCLTranshumanist from Georgia answered…4 days

No, but require states to tie their minimum wages to an economically appropriate standard, whether CPI, PPI, or something else.

@B4JGXMDRepublican from Wisconsin answered…4 days

Yes, We should raise the national minimum wage to a compromise level (such as $10) and incentivize working in non-minimum wage jobs

@B4J6Z3YTranshumanist from Kentucky answered…5 days

I support increase minimum wage (20) starting for company’s like Walmart and fast food, but these should not be enforced by the government but should be achieved by strikes boycotts and deals, that way they will be more cautious to raise their costs.

@B4HNC6XTranshumanist from Florida answered…1wk

No, wages are extremely area specific. Minimum wage in California should be completely different from minimum wage in west virginia because of two completely different cost of living standards.

@B4GZFX4Democratfrom Maine  answered…1wk

Yes, but the country should try to incentivize unions and in the future, abolish minimum wage and let the unions and corporations decide on wages, with minimal regulation from the government

@B4GHWKYLibertarian from Indiana answered…2wks

No, a minimum wage should not be established at all. Instead a ratio should be established of 1 to 5. If a company can only affor to pay the lowest peron $5/hr then the owner may only make no greater than $25/hr (no including return on investment) as well as barring bonuses and incentives unless given starting at the bottom working to the top.

Yes, but only with inflation trends, as this would keep greedy businesses in check

@B4GBRFNVeteran from Virginia answered…2wks

regardless. minimum wage standards should be a state option rather then a federal option

@9J8GTL3Independent from North Carolina answered…2yrs

Yes, but the minimum wage should be adjusted on an annual basis, depending on the cost of living, with the understanding that the federal minimum should be considerably lower than those set in states like California and New York.

@9J7YP58Veteran from Florida answered…2yrs

No. minimum wage jobs are meant to develop experience, not support a family. Raising minimum wage doesn't raise skilled employee wages and thus creates a cycle of price increases that are unfairly burden the middle class.

@9J6JD9MRepublican from New Jersey answered…2yrs

No, state and local governments should have control over minimum wage because costs of living differ.

@9J6BRGMConstitution from South Carolina answered…2yrs

@9HYXMSDTranshumanist from New Jersey answered…2yrs

No, this will only cause prices to increase in a never ending cycle, instead lower the cost of living. The cost of living has increased drastically over the years, while income has not.

@9HYLPL5Veteran from Idaho answered…2yrs

No let the employer decide the wage and the employee decide to accept

@9HYBXMPTranshumanist from California answered…2yrs

yes, prices these days for everything even grocery shopping is ridiculous and people should be paid a decent amount of money, not just to survive. People don't have any extra money, just money so they can pay bills and buy food.

@9HXFGBMRepublican from Oklahoma answered…2yrs

Yes, but at a much slower and smooth rate compared to what people are suggesting.

@9HX9M62Veteran from California answered…2yrs

If the federal minimum wage increases, so should the federal pay scale for all others as minimum age increases.

@9HWNYY7Constitution from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

No, it should be up to each state and potentially each county to decide min wage for that area.

@9HWN3YKWorking Family from South Carolina answered…2yrs

I think it depends on your job on how much you should start off making.

@9HWGHQVAmerican Solidarity from Illinois answered…2yrs

no one should work for minimum wage, maybe something like living wage and adjust as time goes by.

@9HWBD5GWomen’s Equality from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

Yes, but only if wages for other job positions are increased for someone with a higher education.

@9HW76NVPeace and Freedom from Nevada answered…2yrs

It's a messed up situation in all directions, and I'm a 17 year old from a comfortable living situation with no work experience who really has no experience in/on the matter.

@9HVMF7PConstitution from California answered…2yrs

I believe that companies should share the profits of the company. They sure Sam is he allowed to make 50 times more than I lost 740 or 100 times more than I lost it in for me but many US company the owner of makes 1500 times more than I want to take employees and I am paying the health benefits for the lowest paid employees.

@9HVBFSKRepublican from North Carolina answered…2yrs

This should be a state issue as cost of living is so different around the country.

@9HV9ZZKConstitution from Florida answered…2yrs

Increase minimum wage for certain jobs, based on if they get tips or not or if the job requires extra labor, evaluate jobs and put them into different brackets of minimum wage

@9HTZVV3Constitution from Virginia answered…2yrs

No. They need to fix the issue of inflation. If prices are lowered then they will be able to buy what they need.

@9HTQFS6Women’s Equality from Colorado answered…2yrs

Yes but not by much because we already have a big minimum wage

@9HT3NLHDemocrat from South Carolina answered…2yrs

They should increase the pay of some jobs such as Teachers but other jobs with minimum wage are fine

@9HT2WC3Independent from Utah answered…2yrs

No, instead minimum wage should be tied to a percentage of the American Consumer Price Index (CPI)

@9HSZFFTPeace and Freedom from Michigan answered…2yrs

Up the minimum wage to everyone by a little amount not just federal.

@9HSH333Socialist from Texas answered…2yrs

No...increasing the minimum wage is clearly not the answer. It does give the kids more money but it also makes the government print more money. The more money is the more products needing to be produced. That could hurt the economy and puts the US at risk of empty stores.

@9HS9WJ2Green from Texas answered…2yrs

Minimum wage should be adjusted by age and/or personal experience.
