I think it's super. People can get out of poverty. It will increase the conditions of the working poor. It's about strengthening the middle class.
I'm always in favor of an increase. It's never kept pace with wages and it's long overdue.
I don't think we should do that. You can go back and forth with that and there are arguments on both sides, but this could deter companies from hiring if there is limited revenue. You can hire two people at $7 an hour or one for $14 an hour.
