Raise the Minimum Wage

Raising the minimum wage is important because people that go to work everyday should be able to afford things they need. We want to make minimum wage higher then it is right now, because people who are living in minimum wage can’t afford lots of things and a lot of the people who work for minimum wage are in debt. We want to get this approved because the minimum wage is supposed to be a sustainable wage that you can live on.

Right now the minimum wage is a guideline to see how little you can pay someone. Minimum wage is hurting the poor. For example, if a person living at minimum wage gets hurt really badly they can pay up to 1,000 dollars on a Hospital or ER bill. So why don’t you put yourself into their shoes ,and think what it will be like living month to month accumulating debt, like people working at minimum wage.

There are about 46.2 million people in the U.S that are living in poverty and this could help. The federal minimum wage is $ 7.25. We the Town School Boys from 5th grade personally think that it should be higher. We have run the numbers!! So we hope you can sign our petition, so people who don’t have that much money can get some money today.
SO SIGN THIS PETITION TODAY!!!!
