    There has been much discussion about a $15 minimum wage. Nothing could be more detrimental to Gov. Hogan's efforts to create jobs than to have the legislature pass this. Some people will benefit but many more will suffer as businesses and jobs move to neighboring states. Unemployment will rise and there will be more pressure to raise taxes to compensate for the loss. It is a bad idea.

    I support the minimum wage $15 per hour so that individuals & families for starters can afford more in order to sustain a better quality of life. The key is to enforce this without negatively impacting businesses' bottom line. Therefore, my position is to come up with a viable solution to help smaller businesses afford the change while improving the overall quality of employees.

    To improve the quality of life and take Kenner out of poverty, we must consider increasing the job market for more construction and high tech jobs that can pay up to $15 per hour. I will make every effort to adopt a plan that gradually increases the minimum wage up to $15/hour within 4-years. Additionally, I would consider increasing the salaries for all Police Officers and Firefighters!

    Does minimum wage match the cost of living? Minimum wage must support at least basic living that includes housing, food, clothing, & transportation. I will attain & generate funds towards productivity & economic growth that will increase the minimum wage,increase economic activity, spur job growth that reduces poverty, reduce government spending, reduce crime, & reduce/eliminate all inequalities.
