At a point, raising minimum wage makes some lose their jobs

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

We should resist any effort to raise the minimum wage — to protect jobs! Everyone can get the wage he is worth. The poor person who really needs to earn something, just won't have a job if we are not allowed to pay him what he is worth. If the minimum wage is raised, the person who was earning only the minimum loses his job! You are not nice to take away his job just because he is not worth that higher amount. For example, I'm sure you have seen old or feeble people at "work" when they can barely do anything, but the store owner paid him anyway.

At some point, raising the minimum makes that person lose the job!
