When I heard that they wouldn’t make the minimum wage $10 dollars an hour until 2016 I just has to laugh. Inflation will eat up the 10 dollars and be worth less in 2016. Right now it would be good to get the raise but not in two years when inflation goes up.What they need to do is make it 10 dollars right now and keep increasing the wage with inflation.
If you took $2 dollars an hour from the 60’s and brought it up to todays worth it would be around $20 dollars an hour. So this minor increase to $10 dollars is really a minor joke that no ones laughing at.
