Con to the question "Should the Federal Minimum Wage Be Increased?"
"I want people to make a lot more than $9... Nine dollars is not enough. The problem is that you can't do that by mandating it in the minimum wage laws. Minimum wage laws have never worked in terms of helping the middle class attain more prosperity...
I don't think a minimum wage law works."
