    The minimum wage is the economic floor for our nation. It has failed to keep up with the growth in productivity, making it so that nobody today can afford to live on the minimum wage alone. As well, local governments need the power for, and be encouraged to, set a higher floor which reflects their domestic costs as well. If we fail to do this, it will hurt all of us in the end.

    It’s time we raise our minimum wage statewide to help grow our middle class and help families rise out of poverty. Our consumer-based economy is based on an individual spending. When people have more disposable money to spend, businesses have to hire more employees to keep up with increased demand. I support I-1433. I support a fair minimum wage with Cost-Of-Living Adjustment (COLA).

    1st we need to address monetary policy reform, the cost of living & inflation will continue to rise. The idea that a “living wage” will put more expendable capital in a person’s hand fails to consider the broader issue of the continuous depreciation of the dollar. Urging the Fed to slow the rate of artificial credit & fast cash into the economy is a solution that will benefit low income earners.

    I think we should increase the minimum wage but not straight to $15 dollars. If we have the Federal Minimum wage go up with the Consumer Price Index of each state for each state. This way small businesses who are include in the CPI are even with big business and you do not have more workers going to bigger business and shutting out small business that are often part of how one pays the bills.
