Implement Minimum Wage

This petition had 72 supporters

People who are working in a low- wage are known to be working in poverty. Raising the minimum wage can fight poverty greatly. In the latest statistics, we see a negative relationship between poverty and low minimum wage. If the United States decides to raise the minimum wage then the poverty level will decrease. Throughout companies raising the minimum wage has been a very popular topic because some states believe that raising the minimum wage can fix the inequality in the United States. Imagine a single man who is working full time with two kids and the parent is earning the federal minimum wage 7.25. How is he suppose to take care of himself and also his kids? Citizens that are working very hard deserve to get their income increase because it is unfair for someone to work that hard and still be under the poverty level. People who work  hard have the right to feed themselves and their family, have a place to live and have a livable wage. Raising the minimum wage can give those people who are living in a poverty to have hope and that can allow them to have something to build their own life.
