  1. Hi

    I just have to say, if they raise min wage to $15 per hr the. I will be making min wage, where I work there is a pay freeze and I haven’t gotten any sort of pay adjustment in over 5 years, in fact I know make more then there max pay for any new people!!! Every time min wage goes up companies are Not obligated to raise other’s pay by the same percent!!

    Also how many companies will just up and leave if they raise Min wage that high?? When wages go up the company factor those cost into the cost of the product, the cost of goods will rise!

    No one ever thinks of that!!
