  • Sanityman this discussion is closed. I concurred with the panel that minimum wage only hurts the low income class. By the way, I did some reading and I want Tomyris01, Mr. Tubbs and Mr. Coss to know that they were correct in their arguments. Raising the minimum wage does not help the economy or the low income class. Despite coming from an underprivileged background, people need to be disgust enough with their situations to want to improve it.
