Minimum wage problems

In today’s world, the minimum wage rate is causing a lot of problems. I feel this rate should increase by at least a couple dollars. The prices of everything are increasing, which is causing people to spend more. Many people who have families with children and the parents both have minimum wage paying jobs do not have enough money to pay for their needs and are relying on food stamps for their food, while using the money they are earning in their jobs for their bills.

Increasing the minimum wage will allow the people to have more money and be able to support themselves and their families and they won’t rely so much on food stamps. Raising this rate will help our world today.
