Do you?

I say, NO - It's too much money for a minimum wage level job. People who already have little motivation to work won't work to move up. If they can just keep their minimum wage job and smoke weed everyday and keep going will just keep doing that. I think it's a bad idea.

I have fond memories of my earliest jobs - being treated like ****, doing the worst work, getting paid dirt. But at the same time it was a temp job w no future so definitely didnt deserve high pay.

Used to do demolition work in a hotel sub basement where i spent my days in a dark smoky room bashing furniture apart with a sledge hammer for 8 hours a day for 8$ an hour.

Going to shut out a lot of young people looking for any kind of work experience plus increased reliance on automating tasks with robots.

I think horse **** pay systems like the waiter tip system and the mechanic flat rate pay system should be outlawed and replaced with normal hourly wages.

On the plus side a 15$ hr rate will destroy scam artist temp work agencies and propel companies to do their own hiring.

Like many popular political ideas raising the minimum wage is only a small band-aid on a larger problem.

Sure it needs to go up some and more often overall but it doesn't need to be 15 dollars everywhere. Cost of living, inflation and other factors should determine what minimum wage should be and it shouldn't necessarily be the same everywhere.

They should really teach how to trade stocks in high school because its way easier than actual work.

Personally I don't see why the minimum wage shouldn't reflect the economy/inflation/housing, but I'm no econ expert either. Here's a thought, minimum wage goes up $.25 every time congress gets a raise. Of course people who argue for a $15 minimum typically fall into one of two camps:

1. Unskilled workers who want to live in fancy cities
2. Barely skilled workers who think their meager salaries will go up automatically if the minimum is raised because they purchased a 4 year degree with a 15 year $200,000 loan.

I've never understood those who see a minimum wage hike as giving too much money to unskilled workers.

You do realize that wages haven't kept up with inflation for a long time now? We should ALL be seeing a wage increase, not just the minimum.

California just passed a $15 minimum wage, but it doesn't fully take effect until 2022. That's half a decade from now. IMO, if minimum wage kept up with inflation like it should, it should be even higher by then.

The "1%" are all laughing at us while we squabble over these scraps when we should instead be banding together demanding proper wages/compensation.

and balancing a budget and doing taxes and understanding loan terms. Average 18 year old doesn't understand any of that. They can vote(but don't). They're also generally not worth $15/hour.

Raising minimum wage across the board is bad, but its appropriate for some areas. Wage system in general needs an overhaul as more jobs get replaced by automation($15/hr min wage will only encourage this). Hopefully we'll get basic income at some point.

The age of the worker is irrelevant.

The problem with a minimum wage is the idea that 40 hours of any job should pay enough to support a family. Just because your poor life choices left you single with kids doesn't mean you deserve $31,200/year for getting my order wrong.

except it isn't, raising minimum wage means less kids will be working because lets face it, who would you rather give $15/hr too? a teen or an adult who has experience? minimum wage is meant for those just starting to join the workforce.

There are too many kids anyway.

ZPG! ZPG!

Time to start putting birth control in the tap water. The people of Flint would be much better off with fewer babies than the lead-ridden dullards they have now.

Wait, what?

so every job should pay enough to support a family, is that what you are saying? why would a high school kid who lives at home need that? maybe they need a dual minimum wage based off age, then maybe our children could put illegal immigrants out of work.
