Raise the minimum wage for workers over 18 and peg it to inflation.

Every hardworking American deserves to earn a LIVING WAGE. Every small
business needs CUSTOMERS. By raising the minimum wage, we create more
customers for business--like Henry Ford did when he paid his workers the
unheard-of wage of $5.00 a day so that they could afford to buy Ford cars.
With every employed adult earning a living wage, we reduce the ranks of
those on WELFARE and increase SELF-RESPECT. We protect FAMILIES
by reducing divorce and dysfunction at the lower end of the socioeconomic
scale. Instead of taxing people to pay for welfare, customers pay for this
benefit through a slight rise in the price of goods and services they purchase from
those with minimum wage jobs.

      It is now plausible that the new generation will not have the same standard of living as we enjoy. Let's help them all we can to pay for tuition, health insurance and live a life as one would expect in the USA.
