    My Christian values represented by the life and actions of Jesus Christ compel me to look after the neediest of my human family: to love and serve the poor. Businesses cannot exist, at least currently, without workers. And, workers need jobs which depend on the owners of business. Thus, I do not see where one of these factors, employers or employees, are more important than the other.

    I support raising the minimum wage to a level that would allow folks to support themselves and their families.

    If there were no minimum wage there would be many more jobs available for everyone of all ages and conditions. The minimum wage is inflationary and suppresses hiring.

    Increasing the minimum wage helps individuals and families to not work 40 hours a week and still live in poverty. Money earned with a higher minimum wage will subsequently assist the economy when spent by those earning livable wages.

    I believe that people deserve a fair wage, but I believe that EVERYONE deserves a fair wage. People only talk about "minimum" wage, but nobody ever talks about the people who make more than minimum wage. Governor Brown says she wants to make minimum wage $14.75 in Portland by 2022. But just raising minimum wage will just create more minimum wage jobs. Raise wage, not just the "minimum" wage!
