$15 per hour minimum wage is a failure for our nation…

If you raise minimum wage to $15 per hour, everyone who was making $7.25 (National minimum wage today) to those who were making $15 per hour, will all be making minimum wage. If you were making $20 per hour because you started at minimum wage and worked your way up (that’s almost $14 per hour difference), you will NOT be guaranteed to make more than $7 above minimum wage. Right now in North Dakota, for the working population, $20 per hour is very high wages. My next job will be closer to $12 per hour instead of being close to $20 per hour, and I have been working for 35 years, so a national increase to $15 per hour should bring me up to minimum wage. Now my own government wants to increase my soon to be wages to minimum wage and those who worked hard and increased their wages over time, will also be making close to, if not, minimum wage.  This brings everyone that was making up to $20 per hour down to the poverty level.  Social Services should increase exponentially.  Nice??? 😦
