For years, the federal minimum wage has remained a measly $7.25. I believe this is the kind of pay minors should be receiving at the minimum, not adults. With many dropping out of school and failing educationally in their childish years, a slight raise of the minimum wage (possibly for adults) could potentially help some of these people get on their feet, and maybe get their life in order if they choose to do so. 

This kind of change can benefit an entire community, an entire nation. Let's stand up peacefully and bring a slight change for the better regarding wages, rather than a mass change of $12 or more, which some suggest. That's inflation waiting to happen. Keep it small, keep it simple, help the communities of America.
