Punctuation and grammar aside, your opinion exemplifies the failure of the educational system.
The only jobs that pay minimum wage are entry level. Unskilled, inexperienced employees are whom? What is the job? Stockboy. Clerk. Gofer.
They're for part-timers and second-jobbers. They're not careers...although such an entry level job may very well lead to a career.
Jacking up the minimum wage makes no economic sense because: (1) It will reduce the number of positions available; (2) It is self defeating in that it contributes to inflation, rendering any "benefit" to a wage increase temporary, at best.
Inflation occurs because a segment of the population will suddenly have more disposable cash, so prices do rise. Moreover, an artificial increase in the cost of entry-level labor during manufacturing and distribution will find it's way down to the end price, adding to inflation.
In the end, jacking up the minimum wage reduces entry-level opportunities and is self-defeating in that it triggers inflation, ultimately reducing buying power.
I used to know a DemocRat who would get on a high horse about the stupid minimum wage throughout any Republican administration (he'd be quiet about it during a DemocRat's reign). He used to say, "How can anyone raise a family on $X an hour?"
Anticipating this argument, I'll say this also: If all a person can earn is minimum wage, he's not at a point were he should take a wife or start a family. These things aren't free. They're not gifts. There is no right to start a family and buy a house at 18. Minimum wage is not a living wage...and can never be for the reasons as above.
Maybe Michigan has been doing a lot better since I left. If not, the fact that it has chosen to frighten business away by increasing the minimum wage at the state level is irresponsible.
